Move Apps to SD Card in Galaxy S4

According to Techienews, Samsung has already rolled up an update bundled with an new app called Apps to SD. This enables users to copy their apps stored in their phone memory to their SD card, which has been the most sought feature of many smartphone users. The update is now available with AT&T, Sprint and through the Kies app for Verizon subscribers.

Move Apps to SD Card in Galaxy S3

There is no way for you to move the apps to SD card in the stock features of the Galaxy S3. The only way to do this is through an app.

Here are the steps to do it:

  1. Go to Play Store by clicking its app icon.
  2. Type “gl to sd”.
  3. In the list, choose the app called GL to SD (root).
  4. Tap Install followed by Accept & Download.
  5. Locate the GL to SD icon and launch it.
  6. Tap the Grant button followed by OK. This will grant your phone Superuser permissions.
  7. Click the Menu key.
  8. Follow it up by tapping Move Data
  9. Just check the box of the apps that you wish to transfer.
  10. Hit the Move button to start the transfer.
  11. Wait for a while all the data are being moved to your SD card. This may take a while depending on the number of apps that you are moving.
  12. When you’re done and you have noticed that some apps no longer appear in your list, click Menu again.
  13. Go to Setting.
  14. Under the Add Mounted Folder section, put a check on the boxes beside “/sdcard/Android” and “/sdcard/data”.
  15. Go back to the list of the apps and you will now see all of them.
  16. If you want to run the app, just tap it.

There are many other apps that you can use for this purpose. All you have to do is search for them in Google Play store. We only featured GL to SD as an example to show you that there is a way to move apps to SD in the Galaxy S3.
