    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 running Android 4.4.2. It has a 64GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card that I use for as many of the apps and files as I can, as the tablet is only 16GB. The eight apps that aren't opening all have com. at the beginning of their names in Application manager. Here's a list:

    com.briercan.embiggen
    com.disney.disneymoviesanywhere_goo
    com.evernote
    com.facebook.katana
    com.google.earth
    com.hg.cloudsandsheep
    com.iconology.comics
    com.loudcrow.charliebrowngreatpumpkinaps

    I've tried reseating the SD card, restarting the tablet, and reinstalling the apps. When I try to move the apps back to device storage, it says "Unable to move app. App does not exist." The apps, save Evernote and Facebook, show as taking up no space on the microSD card. Other apps are on the SD card and they work fine; only the apps beginning with com don't work.

    How can I fix this?

    I've never been a fan of apps on sd cards, as only bits actually go to the card and they seem to cause more issues without actually saving you meaningful memory.
    If you wiped the (apps from) the sd card, and reinstalled the offending apps to the device? You save more storage by moving media (pics and vids) to the card...

    The app never exists on the card, pieces of it do. The app itself is installed to the phone, and has to stay there (it's how Android works - which is why putting media on the card saves more space - the entire media file is moved). If you moved the card from the phone the apps were installed on, to a different phone, there are no apps installed on that phone.
