    How do I save apps on SD card?

    Hello everyone!! First time caller!!

    I just got my S3 a week ago and already I've discovered that there is no button in the application section to move an app to your SD card. Other than cut and paste, is there another way to do it? Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi and welcome!

    I believe that feature is disabled on this phone. There may be a way to do it if you're rooted though.

    Welcome sparkie, may is correct that's not supported on this phone AFAIK. Even apps like app 2 sd won't work. May's right you might be able to find a work around if you're rooted (haven't tried it with tibu personally) but honestly I don't recommend moving apps to sd. They won't run as well and can cause some issues in certain cases.

    Welcome to the forum Sparkie!
    What ^^these^^ guys said.....it's not enabled on the US version of the S3. (App2SD does work on the International version though)

    Welcome to the Forum. Yes it does work on my Int'l S3 but they do not perform properly as most apps are not designed to run from the SD card

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    I can't believe that Samsung would disable save to SD on such a "carrier franchise" phone as the S3. Yes, my phone is rooted, and so far the only way I've found to take an app to SD is to cut & paste in Root Explorer.
