    Apps should not be installing on the SD card. When you download they go directly to internal storage, and will only be moved if you do it manually. Either way, only very small amounts of the app are actually being moved (Less than a MB in most cases).

    They're downloading directly to the SD card? 😐

    Are you downloading from the Play Store? Those can not be downloaded to the SD card.
