    Default Moving apps to external SD Card

    Any help with moving apps to the external sd???

    Can't on S3. All apps stored on phone.
    That is why they offered a 16gb or 32gb version.

    At first that was annoying to me, but think about it. 16GB for apps is a lot. I have most of my applications installed and I'm only around 600MB.

    Granted, I don't have any large game apps on my S3, but I'm not really a mobile gamer anyways.

    I have to say, I was an HTC user and switched to the S3 and this phoning is pretty fantastic.

    I almost finished my 16 GB, there isn't a 32 GB available over here :S

    people have to remember that memory works differently on s3. it has an internal SD that everything can be stored on and u can use an external SD to save media on. s3 wont read apps on external sd. as someone said, unless youre a gamer, 16Gb is plenty to store any apps youre gona use at any one time

    I got so sick of hearing people saying "trust me, 16/32 gigs is more than enough." It pisses me off hearing people tell me what I require. Also, you are wrong. The galaxy is capable of reading off the external SD. After searching through countless threads I finally found a solution. It's an app called GL to SD. It requires root access, but it works. Finally my phone is pimped out. Custom skin, rooted jellybean 4.1 (cyanogen mod), extended battery, custom UI,and the final step. Downloading and moving my extensive games library to my SD. Officially pimped out.

    I agree. The S3 is my first smartphone and I purchased the 32GB external drive so I had plenty of room to play. Spent a pretty penny and rooted it the 2nd day as a newbie. I had some freeze issues with icq and I think junk apps loading ads. I would really like to put apps on my external and keep my internal clean. I have several frozen apps in TB some I would like to have accessible. I'm really looking forward to learning linux so I can really play. So how can I move my apps?

    JUST TO MAKE SOME PEOPLE THAT DON'T OBVIOUSLY KNOW MUCH ABOUT SAMSUNG OR FORCE MOVING APPS TO SD, HERE IS A WONDERFUL LITTLE APP THAT CAN TAKE CARE OF EXT SD ISSUES AND BIND IT TO ICS/JB (ICE CREAM SANDWICH/JELLYBEAN) IOS SO THAT YOU CAN MOVE APPS TO SD WITH FORCE MOVE TO SD APPS!!! THE APP IS CALLED "ICS SD BINDER" YOU CAN GET IT ON GOOGLE PLAY OR DIRECT DOWNLOAD FROM APP BRAIN OR WHATEVER APP STORE YOU USE AND THE BEST PART ABOUT IT IS THAT IT'S FREE!! F**KIN AWESOME!!! ENJOY!!!

    Not on ICS or JB, I'm afraid.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    yes unrooted it works fine...
    but should you run into problems, which I doubt since this particular app is for SG series phones, let me know and I'll give you the rundown on how to get things working manually with a pc....

    Tbh im happy with my apps on sd and media on Ext Sd but im not a gamer.
    I cant imagine how an app could make the phone read apps from Ext Sd without fooling it into it which would require root though tbh....

    Why is folks blaming Samsung? Google has made the change for apps.

    Its simple enough to say the least but heres what you have to do:
    #1: set mount point ex: ext sd/externalsd
    #2: make sure unmount emmc is unchecked.
    #3: then select save & reboot let your phone reboot and voila your all set!! L

    Does rooting apply to tablets? I would also like to move apps to an external card. The creator of appmanager lll pro says that the android system will only allow his app to move from others from the phone or tablet memory to the internal card but not the external. Will gl to sd work on the novoflame7 tablet by Ainol? Thanks.
