App to SD in Xperia ZR lollipop is NOT WORKING!!!

This feature is just to fool us and in reality is just not working...

 

***********************************************************************************************

 

Example One: Data Files...( App: Wordweb Dictionary)

 

"AFTER DOWNLOADING THE APP (not yet moved to SD card)"

 

**********

 

Details in Settings:-

 

Total.........................94.47MB

App on device: ......29.66MB

App on SD: .............0 MB

Data on Device......132 KB (Note: Folder size of wordwed in ANDROID->DATA is 64.50MB)

Data on SD..............64.68 MB (Note: App to SD not yet done) (Note: DATA NOWHERE FOUND ON SD CARD, ANDROID->DATA webword folder size 0KB)

 

***********

 

MOVING APP TO SD....

 

 

Total.........................96.25MB

App on device: ......1.85MB

App on SD: .............29.59MB

Data on Device......132 KB (Note: Folder size of wordwed in ANDROID->DATA is 64.50MB) (Note: Remains the same after App to sd) 

Data on SD..............64.68 MB (Note: DATA NOWHERE FOUND ON SD CARD, ANDROID->DATA webword folder size 0KB) (Note: Remains the same after App to sd) 

 

******************************************

 

1..So as you would see that it shows that data is on SD CARD but in reality it's on Phone memory...

 

2. App hardly takes any place, it's the data which needs to be moved..

 

3. This is not just with Data file but OBB files as well, same was done with Dead Trigger 2....Setting said that majority of data was on SD card but in reality SD card was having 0KB DATA and all the DATA was stored in ANDRIOD->OBB.....WHATS THE USE OF MOVING 10MB APP WHEN 350MB DATA STAYS ON PHONE MEMORY ""EVEN WHEN IT SAYS IT"S ON SD CARD""

 

IMPORTANT: THIS IS NOT JUST FOR THIS PARTICULAR APP BUT FOR APPS IN GENERAL, I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL APPS WHEN I WAS CHECKING WHAT"S THE PROBLEM IS....eg SHAZAM and WHATSAPP HAS SAME ISSUE OF """0KB data on SD CARD""" and all data in PHONE MEMORY ANDROID->DATA......................eg Contract Killer """0KB data on SD CARD""" and all data in PHONE MEMORY ANDROID->OBB

 

 

SONY PLEASE ANSWER THIS 3 POINTS

If you want Sony to answer then contact Xperia care as this is a user led forum only and aren't able to answer specific questions targeted towards Sony directly http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/support/contact-us/
