    I use a rooted samsung galaxy core 2 sm-g355h phone, and i wasn't allowed to download stuff to the memory card except to specific folders. But i got help. I was asked to download 'SD Fix' from the play store, i did that, and now i can download to the memory card; to any folder of my choice. But apps always store their data on the internal memory. My internal memory has very little space too and so i'm always being disturbed with 'storage space running out' notifications. Is there an app for rooted android phones that can somehow make the apps store their data on my SD card instead? I really need help.

    You can try Link2SD. The free version only allows moving apps, the paid version also lets you move data although some will still remain in internal storage. The card has to be formatted and partitioned in a specific manner, and if it dies (which they do) your data goes with it so keep backups.

    If you contact the developer and other via PayPal, they may be able to send you the apk so you can install yourself.

    the app itself is going to have to do that for you.

    ie, I use ASUS File Manager to transfer files around on the phone, it is great, has a nice GUI to it... I have the phone's apps set to Default to the extSDcard.....
    I rarely ever, download a picture except on Facebook, and I just now used ASUS FM to look and see where Facebook is storing the pictures that it downloads, and they are on the extSDcard... look at this image.

    My phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 rooted on 4.4.4

    That app is in the Playstore here => https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.asus.filemanager

    Perhaps that can help you, you can use ASUS FM to move all of the internal downloads/pictures, etc over to the extSDcard.

    hope that helps you out.

    Use the free Hola app and set it to a country where the app is available...
