Of course, this process can become tedious if you wish to move all of your apps to the SD card. Luckily there is an app called SDMove available at the Google Play app store that will do this for you. From SDMove you can simply tap Menu > Move All and all apps that can be moved will be.

If you ever decide you want an app to be moved back to the device memory, you can repeat steps 1-5 and choose “Move to device“.


Why don’t I have the option to move my app to the SD Card?

Not all apps can be moved. This could be because the developer made the app that way or because it’s an app that’s included on the ROM of the tablet. Also ensure an SD card is inserted to your device and your device is not plugged into a computer while performing the above steps.
