    Hi there,

    If you want to transfer the app from the internal memory of the device to SD CARD.

    Then, you need to download an app called APP TO SD.

    This app allows you to transfer the apps from internal memory to SD CARD one by one. Also, it pokes you whenever a new app installs in internal memory of your device.



    Hope it helps!

    Regards!!

    Re: How to move apps on external SD card in Android 4.0?

    There are two kinds of apps that can be moved to the SD card. The first type require ROOT permissions and the second type can be moved to SD card by ordinary app...

    To move system apps first you need to root your phone...

    Try these apps--->

    App2SD - Save phone storage ---> link

    DroidSail Super App2SD (ROOT) ----> link.

    Re: How to move apps on external SD card in Android 4.0?

    I have version 4.0 - however when I try to move an app - there is NO "Move to SD Card" button! This happens whether I try to do it manually (Settings--->Apps---etc) or if I use a program such as "App 2 SD". App 2 SD shows 6 programs I can move, but when I click on the program, the next screen is missing the "Move to SD card" button.

    Any one have any ideas what is going on here?

    I have an 8GB card installed, and the Tablet see's it and the contents already on it (came from a different phone). I even erased all data on the SD card - still, NO "Move to SD card" button (the 3 other buttons are there, tho).

    Thank you!

    Guys, I have same kind of problem (but not exactly the same one, i guess).
    I have 2 mounted storage devices in /root, they are /sdcard (which is internal memory) and and /mnt/ext_card (which is my real sd card). None of those programs all you mentioned are able to manage that ext_card so that's the problem.

    Re: How to move apps on external SD card in Android 4.0?

    With my Android 4.0 tablet, there are 2-count-em-two "SD cards".
    The Internal SD card that came with the tablet.
    With this card, I can "move to SD card" using a menu item.

    Aah, but the External SD card?
    There is no menu item which will move an app to this guy.
    Indeed, to get stuff on this "external" memory, I need to plug the tablet into the USB port.
    Then the external memory appears alongside the tablet's "internal" memory
    ... and I can drag pictures and videos to it (but not apps).

    Hello friend,

    I have the right solution for your problem just follow my words.
    1.At the first you need to know that there is no such option available with the preloaded software of ICS v4.0.
    2.You need to root your phone for such operations and if not there are many third party apps available in the market for this purpose.
    They are:
    1.App 2 SD.
    2.Advanced SD card manager.

    Try these steps and check whether your problem is solved or not.For sure your problem will get solved.

    All the best...........................

    THERE IS NO "MANAGE APPLICATIONS" button IN ANDROID 4.0!!!!! It is very frustrating to to read the same useless advice repeated over and over again.

    I feel for you, a lot of noobs around. Same issue here, another android stuff up. With all this removing functionality to over simplify things and remove local storage, instead of having advanced modes, unfortunately, we might have to give up android eventually..

    Anyway, they have removed the limited functionality on some devices due to hardware issue or something. But you can find things like the following, which I'm yet do try to see if it works for 4.

    Hi

    I've done some more research for you, and found two possible solutions.

    Going back to an issue that might be related, google wants control of your data, and have started removing sd card slots from some phones, replacing them with large internal sd space (I have around 2GB on my RAZR, like my $69 phone that fortunately move apps to sd.

    Some people say that it is because Motorola/etc sealed up security holes to stop legal rooting backup and illegal piracy, the move function being part of that.

    But the sdk solution doesn't work now because one of the paths has changed, and if you change the path in a script it will work. There are links, but they are hidden to unregistered users and I have not got around to that.

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...-sdcard-2.html

    http://www.bongizmo.com/blog/moving-...apps2sd-froyo/
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...y-sd-card.html

    The other solution is simple, I think I remember it, but it is .it on the latest play store app version, but have not checked the online site to see if I saw it there. When you instal at the acceptance and download button, there is a option to select the storage location.
