    I have 3 android tablets now and want to buy a larger size micro SD card for my main tablet.
    Then put the one already in it into another tablet
    Then put the last one into the 3rd tablet.
    They have photos videos etc. on them

    My question is, can I just swap them and they will work well?

    Or do I have to take everything off them and put it all back on?
    Thanks.

    Swap, no need to delete anything

    Thanks Danny. That would be brilliant then.
    But what about the one or two programs where I have tapped "move to sd card?
    Even though afterwards there is no sign of them. :(

    All apps must be installed on the internal first, so any apps on the external would need to be reinstalled on the devices again.

    Thanks again Think I tapped a couple when I first had a tablet without knowing. But shouldn't there be a sign of them on the card?
