How to Transfer your Galaxy Tab Apps to an SD Card

For Tablet Computers like the Galaxy Tab, memory is not so much of an advantage. There is a limit to these devices’s internal storage and due to its mobility users want to store almost everything in it; just in case they are needed. Applications eat up a lot of the devices memory. Good thing is that these applications can be moved to an SD card which for Samsung Galaxy Tab is expandable for up to 64GB. Once you have the app installed to your Galaxy Tab, you can then follow these easy steps. Important reminder, once you move your apps to the SD card, the device is no longer available when they are users mounted to a computer.

1. From the home screen, press the Menu button below the screen.

2. Select Settings.

3. Tap Applications.

4. Tap Manage Applications.

5. Choose the app you wish to move.

6. Tap the Move to SD card button.

Once you tap Move to SD card your Galaxy Tab will now begin the procedure of installing your app to the SD card. If, for example, you get an error message “Failed to move application”, this means your app might be included with the ROM of your device and moving it is not possible.
This procedure can be frustrating if you want to transfer all of your applications to the SD card. Good news, there is an app in the Android market available for you which can move all the apps on one tap. All you need to do is download the app SDMove, after installing it, just tap Menu>Move All. It is that easy!
If you wish to move your apps back to its internal storage, all you need to do is repeat steps above and select Move to device instead of Move to SD card.
