Error installing UniFi 5.10.19 for MacOS

I have just downloazded UniFi 5.10.19 for MacOS and successfully installed it on my Macbook Pro or at least thats what the installation program reported.

 

However when I try to launch UniFi I get the following error - "Unable to create database. Please re-install UniFi to a writable directory."

 

I have tried re-installing and just get the same error when I try to launch. Where should I be installing the UniFi Controller. Why doesn't it work in the Applications folder?
