Re: Can't transfer apps to SD

There's an alternative but you will have to root your phone

Re: Can't transfer apps to SD

Because Android 4.1.x "not want it"... Read other similar threads on this forum and you will know why this is currently impossible...

Re: Can't transfer apps to SD

You can not transfer apps to sd card, you will have to root your phone and install an app such as apps2sd or link2sd as well as partition your SD card

Re: Can't transfer apps to SD

I'm using Sygic as navigation software and after the last update I looked for a way to copy the maps to the sd-card. On the Sygic site I found two different solutions. One was move the maps directory to the sd-card and change the entries in the settings.ini and the second way was to move the whole directory sygic (this means the complete app) to the sd-card. I tried the first solution but there was a problem to find the correct logical name for the sd-card for the relative path so I tried to move (not copy) the whole directory.

 

The navigation works on the sd-card without any problems. Are there other guys who have the same experience with other apps?

Re: Sony Xperia SP

Hi, not all apps can be move to the SD card. You can't move those without the option.

Re: Move apps to SD-card?

It's "feature" of Android 4.1 and newer, not fault of Sony. In default, Android 4.1.x does not allows transfer apps on SD card....

Re: Move apps to SD-card?

Jarda is correct, that option was removed from the newer Android version OS.
