Can't move apps to sd card

Installing Apps in microSD card, when will this feature come?

When will we get this functionality? The S4 has this option on their app manager wherein they can transfer installed apps to their memory card without rooting their unit. I know for a fact that Sony released the Z1 months after the S4 why didn't they include this functionality on our phones considering it is "premium". I bought the this phone because I trust the brand and I have been loyal to them. I beleive not having this functionality is a big draw back given that we only have 16gb of internal memory to use for apps, which is pretty low. I hope Sony can resolve this. 

 

and by the way did somebody try using this method: (Using adk)

Re: Can't move apps to sd card

Hi I stopped buying sony phones, after getting the sony ericsson mini, it had a very old version of android, 1.6 donut(android 2.3 was out when i bought it), and you couldn't  put apps onto your memory card. well that agnoyed me so much i didnt buy a phone fom sony for over 3 years, but was so impressed with the sony z1, I got one, not even thinking that in this day and age, not being able to transfer to sdcard would still be a issue, but it is...Anyway someone wrote that sony are working on it, trust me when I say as someone  who had over 60000 views on my post complaining of this problem on my mini, that sony did nothing, and I don't think they do anuthing now. What I don't understand, is with the size of games files, why this is still a issue in 2013. I remenber uniwooley on here, i was at that time of owning the mini, also one of the top 10 contributers, but they have me a sa new member, funny that isn't it !!!

Is there no way to put apps on the sd card?
I swapped from an iPhone 4s with 32 gb and 20 of that was offline Spotify tracks. Bought a £50 32gb SanDisk ultra and now it seems . Can't put apps on it?
C'mon Sony I love my z1 but I can't live with 5gb of music!!!!
Please please enable sd card loading.
