    If you've done everything correctly, it may just be a bad card. Could you try another?

    It's up to the developers on how much, if any, app data can be moved. There really is no amount of modifying that con be done to change this.

    It's really up to how knowledgeable the developer is. Some apps, due to the way they're written, won't run from the card. If the developer knows what he's doing, he won't allow such an app to be moved (so he doesn't get complaints about the app not working, pass a lot of emails back and forth, only to find out it's installed on the card - which wastes time he could be using to develop an app - multiply that by thousands of users and ...)

    Android was never designed to run apps from the card, it was designed to store data on the card. If you want to spend the time, learn how the fstab file works and mount the card as your primary storage.

    I have the same problem with my B15Q CAT and Android 4.4.2

    I guess that because this phone has been set up to only allow for a small amount of apps to be on the External and Internal memories. Also most of the apps like "save 2sd" apps will not work a say various other things. It seams the only way I can see to save more apps than the limited amount and get them to work is probably "rooting the phone" and maybe even doing something like partitioning the SD card. Maybe you can copy apps directly onto a partitioned SD card from your computer and do it that way? I will probably just seek help rooting and pay a little money to do it. Even though I really don't want a stranger messing with my Super user. If anyone has any answer to this? I see some have gotten root but has anyone found a better way to transfer apps? transferring everything else is simple. Their are a large amount of transferable apps that could be used if only some how could save them to the SD. Without rooting?

    If you have Superuser on the phone, it's rooted already. Run External 2 Internal SD (Root) and the external SD card will get mounted ad the internal storage. So if you have 8GB internal and a 32GB card, you'll have a phone with 32GB of internal storage.

    (You can do it manually if you know what changes to make in which file, but the app does it for you.)
