Trouble Downloading

No matter what I do I can’t get the Bark for Kids app to download. It keeps giving me the message about needs special permission to write storage. I’ve literally tried everything I know and nothing works. I’m on my 7 day trial and wasting my days just trying to figure this out. Please help.
