    Hi,
    I have Sprint Note2. Android 4.1.1

    How can I move ( relocation ) my phone-memory installed application to external SD card.

    My phone is 16gb and has only about 5gb left.
    I have SD card installed - 64gb

    which application will move my applications to SD card.

    I tried few free and few purchased ( wasted my money ) but, still cannot move it

    like

    Apps to SD Pro
    and
    Move Apps

    Is Samsung killing us, or Sprint or Android.... ? that we simply cannot move nor install in external SD card....

    Your input, thought, guidelines much more appreciated.

    The design motive is to allow media (pics, movies, etc) to not clog up the internal memory ("sdcard") and be automatically shunted to the card you have in the slot ("extsdcard"), allowing for the apps and their apk files etc to work together unfragmented, etc in the internal memory.

    Thus, moving apps to the external sd card is not allowed in the Note 2.

    You've got to be kidding me!!! You can't move files/apps to the SD card??? Then what's the point or advantage of even having a SD card slot? What gives!!!??? :thinking:

    You can put whatever files you want on the sd card. Just use any file manager app.

    What you can no longer do is move apps. Google have moved away from sd cards, and while Samsung still make them available for those who want removable storage the current Android OS no longer includes that feature (which only ever moved part of the app).

    Which translates to developers making apps to support the feature. There are a few apps out there that can work with their main data placed in the SD card. I have a few gigs worth of app data that is on the external card only because the app that uses it supports it.
