    Hi Folks

    Got a nice shiny new S7 but all my apps were on the SD card of my old S4 - obviously ran out of space which is one of the main reasons I got the S7. For the life of my and Google searches I cannot find a way to move this to the new phone - the obvious first attempt is just moving the card. That doesn't work.

    Would be most grateful for a solution because I've had the S7 for weeks now and haven't even used it because all my apps are on the SD card!

    Many thanks in advance

    When you first log in with your Google account on your new phone, it should give you an option to restore all the apps from your Google account, including most of the data that were used by those apps.

    Google restore does not restore app data. Use Helium to do a full backup including data and transfer to the S7. I don't know if it will work as apps are not designed to be run from sd card. You may be aware that not all of the app gets moved so the S7 may get confused as it only has internal memory
