    I just added a 32gig micro SD card to my HP Slate 7 tablet. I am running out of app space on the built-in SD card. What apps can I move to the external SD card without diluting performance?

    The short answer is that without rooting non of the apps will move at all. I don't know how much internal memory your tablet came with but if it was more than 8GB it would be very hard to fill it up with apps. You can however move all your music and photos and some other media to the external card.

    Thanks Leeshor. That's what I thought, but I didn't know. So the external SD is a data card.

    Yes, data only. Some apps do have settings where ytou can specify the SD card for the data for that app but you need to check settings in all the apps to find the ones that do.

    Looking for help with my Kingpad K100. I inserted a 32gb sd card and I can't move any apps to it. I can move the same apps in my phone with a lesser Android OS. I also can't move files to it. I formatted it and it does take files with the adapter in my pc. So I think the card is ok. Anyone have any advice and what file MGR apps that may work.
    TIA
    Arnie
    PS, when I use ES file MGR, to move files from usb to SD card. I get the message that my system forbids this.

    you can try this app AppMgr III or Link2SD. These're two best apps for transfering apps to SD card.

    Hope it help
