    Default Moving apps the SD card

    Can you move apps to SD card because the 16gb probably wouldn't be enough for me.

    I don't have the LG G Pad but you can find out real easy for yourself.

    Go into your Settings/Apps (app management) and locate an application you recently downloaded and installed from the Play Store. Click on it and see if there is an option to Move App to SDCARD.

    Paul has a good way to find out, but what do you need the space for?

    Look for an app called Foldermount. It will allow you to move just about any folder. Only $1 for unlocked version.

    Foldermount should work but you would need to be rooted.

    I used Link2SD on my G Pad and it worked great. Here's the link:
    I had to download a Windows utility called Minitool Partition Wizard and format the card to have two primary partitions. FWIW, I had to make both of my partitions FAT32 format for it to work (instead of EXT2 for the 2nd partition).

    I was also successful with Link2SD. I partitioned my scard using the Android app Aparted, since I use a Mac and the Minitools was not an option. I also had to use 2 FAT32 partitions. I was then able to move many apps to my scard but using 'link to' rather than move.

    I don't know that I can actually write from an application bcs I have not tried that. However what I do not understand is what happened to the first of the two partitions? Until I get this understood, I will continue using my little old 8gb scard and not yet try this with my 64gb SD card.
