    Dear Friends, I am a fresher to Android Phone - Samsung Galaxy Y.

    My Problem is, how to move apps from Device storage to SD Card storage? I also want to understand Why Apps install in Device storage directly, and the move to SD card button is disabled in app settings.?

    Thanks in advance.

    You dont need to root your phone to move apps, just install Apps 2 SD

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.IQBS.android.app2sd&hl=en

    Just install Apps 2 SD from the above link and you`re done.

    You can do this without any apps by going to settings, but this app provides a good UI to perform the task!!!

    There is something called search here..

    Try that.

    Also goto settings > Applications > manage applications > click on any app and select move to SD option.

    But this is a user forum, not a developer forum like XDA, so this isn't usually how we handle this. And it's certainly not how we respond to new members.

    @robzarch: The Galaxy Y forum has a subforum Galaxy Y All Things Root. In that you'll find a sticky post Galaxy Y: All Things Root Guide. You should find links to the information you need in there.

    Hello, I hope this is the correct thread for my request for information. Being a complete technical dummy I have not understood most of the replies. How do I get an app I have downloaded from Google Play Store shown on my Samsung Galaxy Y smartphone when I switch my smartphone on? I do not want to have to go to Play Store, press Apps, search for the app and then open it every time in order to be able to use it. Also I want it to always be on the screen whenever I switch on my smartphone. I had that before but when I updated the app the app icon disappeared from my smartphone screen despite my not having requested that. Oh and please explain what I have to do to root or the like as I have no idea what that means. Thank you for helping and I wish you a wonderful day.

    Kind regards,
    Edwin
