Hi all,

I want to move the all apps to the SD card which are stored on the Phone memory.

I have tried, some apps can be moved but remaining apps can't be moved to the SD Card. The option "Move to SD Card" is disabled. Then how can I move the remaining apps to the SD Card????

Please help

+ If the author hasn't enabled this option then there may be a reason such as a service, widget, or some other action the app will not be able to perform from the SD card. Moving the app may "break" some part of the functionality of the app. If such happens, keep in mind, the author either didn't intend for the app to be moved or never considered the option - kind requests for such an option would be a better choice.

+ Force moving the App may cause many issues with either your device or the program.
You are warned - if you don't know what you are doing, don't move the app!
Without rooting your phone (Rooting your phone can result in a very nice paperweight - you are warned!), you may be able to locate one of the file-managers or other apps on the playstore that can force move the app to your SD card - I would not d/l anything from a non-sanctioned site.

You have to root the phone before accessing such high permission operations on android

1) That was already stated in the prior post. When providing advise that may potentially cause harm to an OS or Device, you should also clearly state this fact.

2) Let's re-iterate, rooting a device will most likely void any warranty, in the USA is often violates the carrier's terms if use, and if the owner doesn't know what they are doing can "brick the phone."

3) Moving Apps to the SD card that are not designed to be moved can "break" the App's functionality which may result in aberrant behavior of both the App and the device.

Do not move all the apps because it may be dangerous for your memory.
