Hi, just received the phone today. I'm trying to put some apps and stuff on my sandisk 64.gb but using app2.sd and app manager there doesn't seem to be an option. The sd card is showing in settings menu as 59gb.

How can I put stuff on it?

Why would you want to put your apps on the SD card? There is masses of space on the phones internal memory you'll be hard pushed to fill it.

any good reasons for moving it to external sd????

btw looking at your post count i think you missed a bit of info. sgs3 uses the whole internal memory(11gb) for apps along with user data. so there is no need for app2sd

I just checked as well. I don't see that option with any of my apps using the Application manager. I'm using stock LEF firmware.

It's a standard Android option, so it should have been included in the ROMs that Samsung designed in my opinion. Some people would like to use their 11GB of storage for other things, but have a huge external memory card.....just a matter of preference, no need to insult the person because of low posts.

don't jump to conclusions and make assumptions. I have 32gb on my phone and have used 16gb for apps. So no, 11gb would not cut it for me as well as others. your use of a phone is not the same as everyone. You are not the standard.

Why must the op provide YOU with a good reason to? Are you some sort of phone police?

Either provide a useful solution or find another thread to spread your ignorance.

its not an insult mate.. he might be missing that info hence i conveyed it to him. apart from gnexus and sgs3 all the mobile have limited data partitions which forces the need for app2sd, thats not the case with sgs3.


there are already many threads for this same thing , if the op searched for it he would have seen that info.

can you tone it down???

your usage also wont set the standard for anyone, i just said the way how sgs3 handles apps.there is nothing wrong in asking a reason.

why do you people jump over in a friendly forum??

Because he wants to isn't a good enough reason? Since when does post count determine how much lurking/reading someone has done on the forum? YOU may not have a need to but many of us do, whether you agree or not.

first of all nothing is said in an offensive way but its been understood in an offensive way. If the op has read enough then why do he post a question thats already been discussed? a simple search would have helped him to get other members opinion.

i agree with the point that there are many who read a lot here but dosent posts.

btw, stay on topic and try helping the op if you can

theres some apps mentioned in this thread, none of which seem to support the S3 yet.

Hopefully developers will get this fixed sooner rather than later.

I don't have the device yet, so I can't really be of more help Im afraid.
