    Default I dont know what to call this thread

    So I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. Since the internal storage isnt that good I decided to get an external SD and mount it.
    The problem here is, when I install an app and I "move it to the SD" it moves it to another SD which I suppose is some kind of Internal SD, its a problem since its storage is bad too, and I want to move my apps to the external SD I bought, not the one with the phone.

    "move it to the SD" it moves it to another SD
    "emulated" "SD 1" "Ext-SD" or something of that type?

    well, I downloaded File Manager to check what I have.
    I got the Normal Internal storage, SD Card (the one where the apps are going to), and External SD Card. The external SD card atm is pretty much useless.

    Apps to SD is no longer supported
    It'll only move a small amount of the data there but the majority is still in the phone's storage. Not worth the hassle...
    It will still work for music, pics, videos and any documents or contacts

    Well thats not the problem, the problem is that its using a wrong SD, its using an Internal SD I think, not the external one.

    That's because the external SD isn't supported

    Keep in mind that the Internal Storage of a phone is sometimes referred to as "Internal SD," so this may be the "SD card" that the app is being moved to. You generally can't move apps to the external SD card.
