    If someone could help, I apparently don't have the "preferred install location" option. I have a Note 1 and the option wasn't there with 4.0 or 4.1.2.
    I have the same problem with no option in settings to change install location. I have a Samsung s2 with 8GB of storage in my sd card but 200mb in device storage. Whenever i download an app, it says "not enough room in the default install location. Please help!

    Hello,

    Its very easy to do if you are getting a message that app can not be installed on USB or SD card. Simply unmount your sd card from storage setting and then install the app. I am facing the same issue in samsung galaxy core 2 and this trick help me out.

    Thanks,

    why are you even suggesting we remove the app?...you don't even know if we play any games on the tablet etc. so you have NO right to be even telling to get rid of a game app that we love to play so do your research or keep quiet and you can just remove the large space apps on your own if you don't play any games so just get rid of your acct as well as you have no clue what to do etc. about this issue

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and what worked for me was clearing the cache in the play store and then restarting my device.
