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

alright, but why xperia L, xperia Z and others with 4.2.2 don't have this feature ?

Because Android developers removed it,with the internal storage growing,they do not need to worry about space for apps.

Why is it Samsung/HTC can figure a way to do this but Sony cant. I'm getting an HTC or Samsung next time. Sony are a massive let down

Even 4.2 on Galaxy Grand has the option to run application from SD card! So not Android but it depends on manufacture now.

I was using the "Samsung I9070" before I purchased Xperia SP, and I'd like to tell you that the Samsung has the feature of moving the apps to SD but let me make one thing clear that the option of moving the "Apps to SD" does not actually move the apps to the external "micro sd" but in actual there are two partitions of the memory in case of Samsung I9070 and I hope that would be the case in their other models too in which they have fixed the 2GB space for the installation of the apps and rest 11GB was available to me as the storage as I9070 has 16GB inbuilt storage and when we install any app it get stored in the space reserved for the installations of the apps ie. 2GB only so in order to make more room we can move the "app.to sd" which in turn move the app to the other partition of the internal memory i.e 11GB but the app still remain in the phone memory. While in case of Sony there is single partition and whole is available for the storage of apps..!! So stop making complaints about moving "apps to sd" and be happy with what you got..!!
