    Default Moving Apps to SD card?

    Seems this function isn't available. I just got the new update and still can't move my apps to the sd card. Oddly, on a 16 gb phone I now have just over 1gb left of storage on the internal memory. I restored most of my apps from my original epic but CRAP!!! How is my phone nearly full already!? There's got to be a way to free up some memory...or a LOT OF MEMORY!!
    Anyone know of any tricks?
    Any info is much appreciated.
    OH...ALSO...if you haven't already, NFS Most Wanted is pretty sick on this thing! Lots of fun and great gfx. I recommend it!! N.O.V.A 3 is good too! Glad to have a phone I can finally game on and take seriously...not just a toilet "temple run"er.

    It is my understanding that with Jelly Bean two functions were lost:

    1. The ability to move apps to the SD card

    2. Adobe Flash support.

    If you're a heavy gamer I believe you'll want a device with more internal storage. The SD card will hold your media (music, photos, movies etc.), but for games it is my understanding that they eat up your internal memory; especially if you have graphic intense games that can be 1-2 gb of storage each.

    I had to remember to turn on the setting to allow 3rd party apps from outside the Play Store. Everything works great now.

    If you are rooted you can still move apps to sdcard.

    Move Apps to SD card (Directory Bind)

    The video seems the easiest solution.

    This is not an Android/iOS issue at this point. Adobe has discontinued Flash (in favor of HTML5), across all platforms, so they're not maintaining the Flash Player for new versions of Android.

    If your rooted I found GL to SD(root) works great, it moves most apps effortlessly to SD. I just needed to move some of my larger game apps, those games that was 1gb and larger.
