    I have the same problem with my Alcatel onetouch pixi3 7 tablet. The only thing I can do is mount, unmount and erase sd card. It will not allow me to move apps or data to it.

    The ability to move apps to the sd card are somewhat limited. The app has to be set up for it, and I think newer versions of Android itself may prevent this. You need to go into your application manager, then go into the settings for the specific app(s) you wish to move. It's the same screen that would have the options to delete app data and cache, and uninstall it. If the app can be moved, you'll see a button in this screen (see attached picture, which shows the AC Forums app isn't able to move on my G4). Keep in mind that moving it will break any widget functionality associated with apps that are moved to the sd card, and not all data will be moved. How much data that can be offloaded to the sd card will vary by app, but some will always remain on the phone to be able to run.

    There are some workarounds to essentially force apps onto the card, but I'm not familiar with how to do them. I find it's just easier to leave apps on my phone, and save the sd card for media and other individual files.
