java - Creating an Android save file on the local storage of the device?

I'm using Libgdx for a game on Android, and i want to create a save file on the local storage of the user's phone, and i'm wondering how would i go about doing that. Some of the documents I have read such as here: https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html#filesInternal have been quiet vague, and I don't really understand what is going on, or can make the example work in my own game. Is there a feature for this in Libgdx itself?

    in libgdx for storing the data we uses the "Preference". which is help to store the data in device itself. here i will give you an example for storing the data in deveice memory.

               myGame extends ApplicationAdapter{
               public static int count;
               public static bitmapFont font;
               public SpriteBatch batch;
               public static Preferences prefs;  
               public void create()
               {
               batch=new SpriteBatch();
               font=new font(Gdx.files.internla("myFont.png"));
               public static Preferences prefs;
            // this is for setting up the storage for the current project 
               prefs = Gdx.app.getPreferences("myGame");
                }
               public void incrementCount()
              {
              count++;
              if(count>100){
             // here "countValue" is the key(which is the reference to the data)  and "count" is the vlaue(the data). the value is stored in key value method.
    
              prefs.putInteger("countValue", count);
    
             // is used to flush the data in to the storage
               prefs.flush();
                 }
               public void render()
                {
             // getting the stored value from the preference
                pref.getInteger("countValue",countValue);
                batch.begin();
                batch.draw(font,countValue+"stored value",0,0)
                batch.end()
                   }
    
             // this is the simple way to store the data into the device memory . it will work in both the android and the IOS

    I think what you look for is Preferences. It is a way to store data for you application and it works for iOS and Android.
