Default apps from internal storage to sd card

thanks, i am currently using the Gionee E3, android OS 4.2.1. and was using the go launcher when i moved the apps to my sd card, i kept getting a "flipboard has stopped working" etc. restarted my phone just now and switched back to default launcher, the icons (droid icons) have appeared but if i select any, it says this app is not installed on your phone.
hope this was helpful.

I tried clean master, and moved es file explorer, after that I checked my sd card. There was no es filemanager apk or its data. I checked in internal memory it's still there

I don't know what it does. But in android 4.2 you can't move apps to sd

Did you deleted clean master. Before uninstalling you need to restore apps otherwise it won't work.

You Can't move all apps to sd card. It is restricted by app developer
But You can move it using Link2SD App which allows those apps to be moved to SD card..

*Your device should be rooted to use Link2SD App


Download Link2SD from Play Store
Link : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.buak.Link2SD





Thanks each & every post which helps you...
