Samsung Galaxy S3: How to Move App to SD Card on Android 4.3

In the recent update Android 4.3, the Samsung Galaxy S3 gets some new features to improve the user experience of using this phone. One of the new feature brought by this new operating system is the ability to change the Volume key function in the Camera app. Now, the user will be able to assign this key as the camera key or the record key which will allow the user to take the picture or record the video using the physical button, the Volume up key or the Volume down key.

Another long-awaited new feature that now available in Android 4.3 is the ability to move apps to the SD card. This feature of course will help the user to keep the internal storage not quickly run out, especially for those of you who have lot of installed apps and only have low internal storage. As we all know that low internal storage will make the device not works properly and encountering some problems.

How to move apps to SD card on Android 4.3?
You can do so through the Settings menu or through the App Drawer.
Method #1: Through the Settings menu
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap More tab.
  3. Tap Application manager.
  4. Swipe to the All screen.
  5. Tap the desired app you wish to move to the SD card.
  6. Tap Move to SD card button.

Method #2: Through the App Drawer
  1. Go to Apps through Home screen.
  2. Long tap the desired app you wish to move to the SD card, and then drag the app to the App info icon at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap Move to SD card button.

Indeed, there are some apps that can't be moved to the SD card. But, by knowing this step, at least now you have one more option to free up your internal storage by moving the apps that are supported by this feature to the SD card. So, hope this helps :)
