    I bought a new SD card for my Samsung Tab 3 as wanted to move Apps to it and have installed a app that can move them and the Apps i want to move is telling me that they can be moved to SD card.

    but when i click on the App to move it there is no where to click to move it but on my Samsung S4 phone i have moved the apps to SD card in that.

    The tablet can see the SD card and i know these apps can be moved as the same ones have been move on my S4.

    any ideas please?

    You may not be able to do it without rooting the device.

    The native ability to move apps to SD was removed from Android with Android 4. Samsung added it back to the S4 themselves after the mainstream media picked up that they were telling users who complained about lack of space to move apps to SD even though the phone didn't have that feature. But they didn't add it back to all of their devices, only some.

    I don't know the Tab 3, but it's possible that the OS on the Tab doesn't support this even though the S4 does. If that's the case then there are apps which can be used to do this but they will require root to work.

    Best to ask in the Tab 3 forum here. This type of thing is device-specific, so the best people to advise are those who know that device.
