Default external sd card for apps

It would be nice to be able to use the external sd card for apps on this phone, I read somewhere about linking a directory on the ext card to make it work... but I can't seem to find the article now. Has anyone made this work?

Thanks!

None of those work - there is an "sdcard" an "internal" and an "extsdcard" in the mnt directory . . . "sdcard" is just part of the internal memory, it doesn't recognize "extsdcard" as an sdcard - it also says the "sdcard" is virtual (which it is) and won't move apps to a virtual sdcard . . .

How much phone memory do you have? I have an S3 and I think it has 16 GB of internal memory and I was told that Samsung does not recommend installing apps to the ext SD Card

My S3 has 2 GB internal memory they don't recommend installing apps to sd card. Maybe you are in the same situation. Do you really need the room?

I'm having the same problem, I rooted my phone and I'm still haveing trouble moving apps.
On my old HTC One i could move apps without rooting the device just by going to app info.
I think it was the ROM style?
But it would be great if I could transfer apps to my extssd, make life a bit easier.
