Default [Q] Changing default path for installation apps

Hello guys,

I'm sorry if this was a repeated question.
But i was wondering how we can change our default installation path on galaxy note?

Because the problem is everytime i download something from google play, its installed in the phone memory which is only around 1,5Gb

What's the use of 11Gb that we had on usb storage then? Can we somehow change the default path to usb storage?

And i don't want to use external SD card. I think that's all, thanks guys! Waiting for your respons!

11gb internal storage is called sd card. App2sd is what you need.

I've tried that and it refers to the original function of move to sd card from the application settings. And it didn't work it says couldn't move not enough storage space and its because i dont have any sd card insert.

Therefore 11Gb usb storage only useful for extended game data and photo or music?

Using App2SD you can only move some part of an app to the 11GB (called as SD card or internal SD) memory..also, you cant move each & every app, since some apps needs to be on the Phone memory (memory which shows ~2GB)..I am using App2SD to reduce the load on Phone memory..it wl b useful for apps/games, especially which r bigger in size..what I believe is the more you keep the Phone memory free, the more faster your phone will be..

Thats a better option..buy a 32GB memory card & move all the stuffs like movies, music, photos, docs etc etc etc to it..use 2GB+11GB (in built memory) only for apps, games & their data..

Even 64GB card works on our Note, as per the below thread:
