    Default App2SD / SD Card ??

    I swear I saw someone post on this subject (or at least their phone not reading the sd card) but I can't find the post so I apologize if I'm duplicating questions. Have a S3 and have installed app2sd on it to move apps to sd card. Thing is when it first opens it will say something to the effect that phone does not have true external storage (sd card is there and I know when I hook it up to my computer, it is reading both the hard drive on the phone and the sd card) or that phone doesn't support moving apps to sd card. That doesn't make a bit of sense to me.

    Does app2sd not support ICS, am I doing something wrong? When I select an app to move to sd card, all I get is the option to uninstall. I 3even tried through app manager on phone and it still gives the same options. Is there another app that will work better than app2sd?? I'm okay space wise. I did figure out how to transfer pictures and music to sd card via computer and so I have 12 gigs of memory left on the device. I know though as time goes on and I get app happy, that room will diminish and using too much memory on phone will slow it down. Any thoughts. Really need to figure this out.

    Default Re: App2SD / SD Card ??

    After one version (2.3 I think) they removed the ability to move apps to external storage (SD Card) from the Android OS. It had something to do with the way the storage was handled, I believe the separation of the system files from the app/photo/music/etc... storage. As best I can tell, there is no workaround for this. I have been trying to do the supposed workarounds for 4.0.4 (ICS) but still no luck. I do not know if rooting changes anything as there is no confirmed way yet to root my device (LG Escape, P870).
