    Default Moving apps to sd card

    How in the world do you move apps to the SD card on the Note 2? On my previous android phone I was using apps2sd, but that app apparently doesnt work on the Note 2. Has anyone figured out a way to move apps to the sd card? Any assistance is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I'm in the same boat. Would love to know how to move apps to the SD card. Like above, apps2sd does not work. Has any one successfully and safely rooted
    a Note 2 yet?

    Was looking for a setting to do this...rather, to download/install apps to the SD in the first place, as opposed to having to move it afterwards.

    Apps seem to use the SD card for somethings (DB? other data?)...as you can see in the App Management info how much storage is used and where, for each app specifically.

    New to Android OS, so I would assume people can easily tell us...anyone?

    I think this is a wider problem and has to do with jellybean not supporting this feature due to some of the new security that's inside it.

    Kills me when NOVA3 is a 2GB app and MUST go on the 11GB or so that I have to spare in user storage (16GB minus OS space...but mostly TW/bloatware I assume).
