When I open apps manager, I don't see any way to move my apps to my SD card. How do I do it?
Better question, how the hell do you have an sdcard in the galaxy nexus?
The GNex doesn't have an SDCard. Its internal storage space is already all available for app storage. Moving apps to the sdcard is a thing of the past on the GNex.
Thanks for the info. I thought it had an SD card.
It has a directory, /mnt/sdcard, but that's not doing anything special. Android just expects it to be there. In a phone with an SD Card, the SD Card would be mounted to /mnt/sdcard (similar to how Windows would mount it to maybe your D: or E: drive).
If something says it's downloading/moving/whatever to your SD Card, it just means it's copying it to /mnt/sdcard, which Android seems to use as a general purpose "random-stuff-goes-here" directory.
I am replying on a Galaxy Nexus THAT HAS AN SD CARD! Yes it is accessed behind the battery rather than from the outside but the very first thing I did upon receiving the phone was Upgrade it to a larger capacity. Try checking your ego at the keyboard and sincerely trying to help! ...not to mention knowing What The Hell You Are Talking About...
Actually the AF way is that we attack issues, not people.
Anyway, are you sure you have a Galaxy Nexus, as opposed to say a Google Edition Galaxy S4? Because I've never heard of a GNex with an SD slot.
Lets keep the words on topic and not attack each other but the issues at hand.
Welcome to the site, hope your 2nd post will be a little more friendly
Google, with the 4.x versions of Android, has removed the option to move apps to the SD card. Your only option is to root the phone, and then there are apps/builds that will allow you to move your apps.
My Samsung Tab 2 7.0 added "add to external SD card" with update 4.2.2. It has an external micro SD card slot unlike my 32 GB GN. It only has 8 GB of internal memory with about 4.5 GB available for apps and other files so the add to SD card function was a very nice addition. I have no knowledge if that function is included in 4.2.x update on other devices which have a micro SD card slot.
