    Would be best for Big Games and App Downloads, basically if you put any system apps etc on it and SD Card gets corrupted, taken out or lost. It's going to screw up phone.

    Someone saying on the video comments it was because of the theme he was using! Also someone else said it does not move the entire file and still leaves some of it in the phone storage. If anything that sounds even better as i would much prefer any apps or games I am using to work straight from my phone storage and the bulk of the app/game to be stored away in a card. Although the card needs to be a good make as I have done this in the past with cheap cards and the games/apps just went corrupt after a few goes.

    Nice, but haven't we been able to do this for a while, now? Also, his theme is why there is a black bar hiding the transfer button. I'd like to see this done on stock software without the theme.

    How is this different from doing it from the application manager? Not sure this is anything new.

    The old way of doing it was killed off since KK 4.4.2. The Adaptive feature is new. But Samsung did not want to use it. This just lets you do it too some degree.

    Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to use this feature because I have over 230 apps on my current, S4 and about half of them have been moved to the SD card. I'm hoping that with the S7, I can move the entire app and data to the SD card. (Can't do that on my S4)

    What am I missing? I have no Change button when I go to the same screen. Only Clear Data and Clear Cache. I could change on my former S5, and expected to on this one. I have been searching to find how and everyone references that Change button I don't have. AT&T US is carrier.

    UPDATE: I have found it available on very few apps, now that I've gone through them one by one. Ones I could move on S5 cannot be moved. Odd!

    How can this feature be labeled "hidden" it is available in Application manager using the same actions as displayed in the video.
