Android and more specifically Google has yet to offer an install to SD Card feature. Since this is an OS limitation you may have to re-think all this.
Once in a while you encounter some one new to Android devices and lash out about this area but what can you do but uninstall what you can to run what you can and then look around for a move to SD option. That option did vanish for a time and Samsung had nothing to do about that. Google controls this OS and most of the polish you see is in the apps the device maker provides.
Hope you can wrap your head around this.
I have a Galaxy TAB 3 SMT-211 7.0" 8GB model, SN: CE0186, Android Version: 4.1.2, Baseband Version: T211XXAMH1.
I bought a 32 GB sd card for this tablet, and I've noticed, nothing is being put on the sd card at all. From what I can tell from the file manager, Samsung listed the internal memory as #sdcard and the external one as #extsdcard. As a result of this apps that are suppose to be saving files to the sd card are saving them all to the internal memory in the part labeled as sdcard. Out of all my apps, I only have one that lets me choose the download location.
Purpose of my buying 32 GB SD card and Tab 3 as well is only to play HD games. For the lack of internal space I can't play console quality game like The Dark Knight Rises. THIS NEEDS 2.2GB FREE SPACE . Where my Tab 3 says I have, actually not (attached screenshot) . I'm a big big Batman fan. May be, anyhow install The Dark Knight Rises on external sd card could solve my problem, if I wrong correct me.
Is there a way to get the apps to save or install files to the actual external sd card?
I'm currently not rooted, and would prefer not to root the tablet.
