App2SD doesn't work on my android

    So I got a Verizon Samsung Stellar (it has Android 4.0.2) a few days ago. All's going well, but I don't have the option to transfer an app to my sd card. However, I can move files etc with a file manager, so the phone recognizes the SD card is there.

    On my old phone (an ancient MyTouch 4G, it was 2.3.4) there was a button in the Application Manager to move an app to the SD card. If the app didn't have App2SD supported it would be grayed out.

    I called Verizon to see why I don't have this option on my newer phone (you think that with a 1GB internal hard drive and an included SD card they would support moving apps to your SD) and the person said that I just hold down the app name and a bar would come up with options. Holding down an app did nothing, no quick vibrations like when you move an icon on your home screen, etc. I've looked and about 80% of apps I have support App2SD so it's not that. How do I fix this? My phone is already full.

    Hmm so it doesn't give you any option to move when you go into settings and apps?

    Have you tried the actual App2sd app?

    Android 4.0 doesn't have that option on any phone. One of the drawbacks of the newer android OS's in my opinion, which quite frankly makes SD meaningless for anything other than pics and videos basically.

    That's what I'm running and ever since 4.0 that option has not existed.
    Are you running stock 4.2? Running an app or something that somehow allows that option?

    I'm rooted with 4.2 rom, even before root on stock I've never had App2sd problem with my gs2 or evo 3d

    nm I see now where even that app doesn't work on newer phones and tablets :)

    I prefer link2sd if I'm just desperate for space anyway ;)

    on my nexus 7 and on my sg3... before root, after root / ROM ...
    4.2.1 and 4.1.1 respectively .. i have never seen the option to move to SD.

    my devices have a big internal storage... and the OS can use it for apps.
    so moving to SDcard has not been supported.

    I wasn't even aware that ics+ users don't even have the ability until last night to move without forcing using root required app, although strangely I've had no problems on my last 2 devices with 4.0/4.1/4.2 (without forcing)

    That's odd.

    So what should I do after I root my phone to enable App2SD then?

    And this is what my phone looks like:

    Also, completely random question, what forum software does this website use?
