    Well you basically can't, not unless the particular apps allow moving to SD, or you've done something Link2SD or App2SD, both of which require root and the SD to be specially formatted and partitioned.

    And, even with the above you can't set the SD card as the default install location. The apps still have to install on internal phone storage first and then get moved.
