Smile Moving apps to SD Card

When I moved my apps to the SD card only around have of the app actually is removed from my phone. Let's say I have a 7 MB app, I tap move to SD card, then the it now says 3 MB is still on the phone. I don't know if this is supposed to happen or what's happening. Would someone mind clarifying?

Entire apps usually cannot be moved to SD, only some data files, etc. Some system files must be left in the internal storage for the app to function.

Also if the App you move has a widget option, the widget will not work if the App has been moved to the SD.

Know that was not your question, but mentioned it in case any problems were caused you might not be aware of.
