Default Problems Moving Apps to SD Card. Please Help

I recently got a Nextbook 8 Premium tablet with 4.1 and I can't seem to move apps to the actual sd card. The tablet itself has a separate part of the internal memory set aside called NAND storage, which the android system recognizes as the sd card instead of the actual sd card. So, when I move the apps, it just goes to the internal storage instead of the sd card. Please help!

Don't have good news for you. You won't be able to move your apps to the SD card, at least not without the use of some really questionable hacks to the system which I can't recommend.

With Android 4.x the partition architecture changed to dynamically allocated virtual partitions rather than fixed internal and external partitions. The bad news is that apps can no longer be moved to the SD card. The good news is that this memory model makes all internal memory available to apps.
If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.
