Move to SD?

    When I click the button for an app to "Move to SD", is it moving it to my External SD card?

    If not, then where is it moving it from and to?

    Since I just discovered I can no longer use ES File Explorer to copy files to my External SD card (because of KitKat security) it made me wonder what "Move to SD" is actually doing.

    Only first party apps are allowed to write to the SD card in KitKat. You can patch it with sdfix in store. Move to SD still moves stuff to the SD card, but none of the data gets moved, making it far less effective.
