Storage [Q] Move app data to Micro USB SD Card

Hi all,

I was looking around the interwebz for external mico USB HDD's after hearing about Sony releasing this soon-
http://www.sony.net/Products/memoryc...medium=twitter

and came across this also-
http://www.meenova.com/


I was wondering, would it be possible to move app data (large files like game data for GTA San Andreas) to a micro USB storage option like above and run the apps from them?

Wasn't sure whether this would be possible or not since it's not like moving apps between the internal storage and SDCARD partitions of the tablet/phone..


Thanks in advance!

Sony Tablet S (retired, being used as media server)- stock 4.1.2
