Can't move apps to sd card

It is really RIDICULOUS not to allow your users to transfer the apps to the SD card. I have mu Z1 for 2 days and already have the internal storage full. Just bought a 64Gb SanDisk SD and found out it will be USELESS.

 

Dear God, Sony. Who lives with 16Gb? It's ridiculous. I hope you change this in the next phone update.

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

Havent you tried this option, by changing the default storage location to SD card even without rooting. Please check the below link. I have tried this with my Karbonn Mobile and it worked for me. But for my xperia Z1, i havent tried yet since i am still left with 5-6GB of internal space.

From Xperia Lounge app you can download free SSX game that sony is giving for free to all Xperia users, unfortunately it is above 1GB and I do not have so much space Slightly frowning Face Slightly frowning Face Slightly frowning Face

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

Ridiculous - how on earth is 16gb supposed to suffice. Oh wait Sony will release versions with bigger memory for me to spend more money on.

No chance, next time I will be more careful choosing my devices

Same happened to me, wanted to try the new SSX game, had 3GB free on internal memory but it was not enough. Have a 32GB SD card in the phone, why won't you let me use it Sony? I bought the most expensive android phone on the market, and now I want to use it!

 

Also as I'm using the manual camera mode to get high resolution pictures the internal memory becomes full very fast, so I have to transfer to the SD manually each time it happens, and after that all my pictures in Album have been tossed out of order so I have to look hard to find them again. Please make an option to always save pictures and other things directly to the SD card. 

 

Sincerely

Sevus

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

I too am having an issue with sonys lack of allowing sd card app storage. I've had the phone 3 days and am already down to 5 gigs of space left on internal storage. My 64gb micro sd card was designed to solve this problem. Please enable this feature asap or you risk losing a very long time customer.

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

Just a heads up guys I downloaded ssx to ext sd card, just change the location save when downloading and it'll go to St card.
Also Google play music app changed music storage to ext sd card two weeks ago so I've ditched Spotify and went with them and have 20gb of music on my SanDisk and 8gb free on phone.
