    How do you direct apps to install on the sd card?

    Can anyone tell me how to direct apps to go and install to the sd card. I have a 32gig and the tablet sees it. Just not sure how to make everything go there.

    Thanks for any help

    As it stands now, apps can not be downloaded to or run from your external SD card. Only data files like docs, photos, songs etc. Apparently this is a limitation on other tablets too. There may be a future software update from Vizio that will allow but right now no.

    I found a couple that did. But as already stated most will not.
    Asus Transformer 16 gig with a 16 gig micro sd.
    Samsung Tab 7"
    Pandigital E-reader
    Apple I-touch 16 gig 2nd gen.
    32 gig I touch 4th gen.
    Google Nexus 7" 32 gig.
    No android phone, too cheap to pay for the data package!

    It depends on what version of Android you are running. Gingerbread supports the feature Honeycomb does not. So for tablets running Gingerbread you can search "App to SD" in the Market and get apps which will let you move compatible apps to the SD card.

    The Vizio doesn't install apps on the sys card. When you go into settings and try to move it to the S's card, it moves it to the 2gb internal storage. Unless you are rooted, Vizio limits this ability.

    So earlier today I swapped the sd cards from my blackberry and tablet and hooked the blackberry up to the computer. At the sd card's topmost level, I created a directory for the card and moved everything into it. I found, like has previously been stated, there were only pictures and songs on the card, along with some blackberry stuff. All the apps which I've been "transferring to the sd card" are not there. I guess, more than anything, I was curious to see if the apps were actually there. They are not.

    J515OP This has already been discussed in multiple threads it does not work on Gingerbread on the Vizio and some other tablets. We appreciate your attempt to help but we need to try to keep mis-information to a minimum or we will have many more threads on this same subject.

    I use APP 2 SD to move apps to the external sd card after I download and install them. It marks the apps that should not be moved with a little "x" to avoid problems. So far it's been working fine with no problems.

    Yes, this was a more general answer following onto Weebee's coment. I could have been more specific regarding lack of support in Vizio and certain other tablets but chicobiker already did that in the second post. It is not misinformation since you can do it and a search will yield more detailed information. It is possible if you root and that information can be found here Sd Card Mount Point modification discussion. Post-Root.

    Not all of us are "post root." And some of us have no intention.
