    I have just got my new phone (Sony xperia xz) and have taken the sd card from my old HTC phone and put in the new phone. However it is not showing the apps that were saved on the sd card from the old phone. Help?!?

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Apps moved to sd card only move several portions to the card and creates links to those from the main app still in internal storage.

    You will have to download the apps to your new device and then try to move some onto the new card. You would be advised to save other media on the card and format / wipe it in the new device then transfer media back.

    Apps are better in one piece in internal storage, so if your new device has larger capacity you should just use sd cards for media and file storage.
