    I have a Coby Kyros 7042 that is not rooted. It has 2gigs of internal memory along with a 2gig INTERNAL SD card. 4gigs of internal memory is pathetic. I have only 2 apps on the internal SD card b/c it is so full of data I cannot even access.

    I have a 32gig external memory card mounted and I haven't been able to figure out how to move my apps there. When I click "MOVE TO SD CARD" in app manager, the tablet just moves the app from the intenal memory to the internal SD card.

    HOW DO I MOVE IT TO EXTERNAL SD CARD?
    do i use android adb or just an app?



    btw, sorry for the noob question! thanks in advance

    EDIT: I should have read the entire post before responding. My apologies. I'll need to research a little bit to get a better solution. :)



    This depends entirely on the version of android you're running.

    You should be able to go under settings / applications / then select the app you want to move. Once you open the app there should be an option to move the app to the sd card. This option will only move a portion of the app, some of the info will stay on the internal memory.

    Also there are solutions for rooted devices to completely move the app to the sd card.
