    Default Can't Move Apps to External SDcard (4.4.2)

    Hi,
    So I've been trying to install some games on my phone, but the data of the games is very large so I put in the external SD card/Android/obb or data, the problem is that when I install the game it says I have no space to transfer the data, and does not read the data that is on the external card, I tried to install applications like 'SD Fix' and they all say that everything is fine and it does not take any action ...
    I tried moving apps to the application 'AppMgr III' and he says that my SD Card only has 1.53 GB when in fact the External Card has 16 GB! Any Help? D:

    Welcome to AC
    Not all apps support moving to the SD card. It is up to the individual app developers if they want to allow you to do that. Even then, some only move a small amount of the actual data to the SD card. Most of the time it isn't worth the extra trouble to free up a few MB worth of storage.

    Well like I said, that is entirely dependent on the app. If the developer doesn't support moving to the SD, you won't be able to move much of the data, if any.
    I've read conflicting stories about whether or not the apps/link to SD card apps work or not.
