If you are looking to move Games and Apps installed on Android phone internal storage to SD Card, then this guide may be a perfect match for you to overcome this problem. So, in this post, I will show you how to move installed apps to SD card.
Before, Google Android 4.3 released, it was made mandatory that every downloaded apps and game from Play Store should be directly installed to the internal storage of your phone. After the release of Android 4.3, these restrictions were officially removed and the developers were given the option to choose whether they wanted to allow their apps/games to be moved from the internal storage to the SD Card.
Probably not all the apps and games which you download and install from the Play store can be moved to SD Card, but yes most of them can be moved. It depends on the developer of the particular app whether he/she wish to give the users the option.
The apps and games which can’t be moved to SD card can be easily moved if you get root access on your smartphone, as rooting your phone gives you full control over your smartphone. Now in this guide i will show you how you can move the allowed apps and games from your internal storage to your SD Card.
However, do note that this method is an official way to move the apps and games from Internal storage to SD card in Android. If you want to move even the immovable apps then you need a rooted device.
Move Apps and Games to SD Card on Non Rooted Android 4.3+ Devices:
- First of all unlock your phone and go to Settings.
- In Settings, scroll down and tap on Application Manager option.
- Now you will be able to see all the downloaded apps and games, you just need to select the app or game which you want to move.
- Now you will able to see a option ”Move to SD Card” if the app / game is supported by the app developer.
- You just need to tap on it and that app / game will be moved to your SD Card successfully.
If unluckily chosen app / game is not supported by app developer, than you will be not able to move that app from your internal storage to your SD Card. In order to move you have to get root access on your phone.
That’s all you need to do in order to move an app / games from your internal storage to your SD Card.
