There is no direct way to move your apps to SD card.

You need to be rooted in order to move apps to SD. Use Folder mount or similar apps to move apps to SD

first you should root your phone,i recommend using towelroot.
once you gain root access you should partition your sdcard and add a second primary partiton with ext4 format(set your device's usb mode to mass storage mode and connect it to pc,using minitool partiton wizard is recommended.this way you wont lose data on your sdcard)
i have created a 4gb partiton on my 32gb microsd but you can choose the right partition size according to how much data you want to move(detailed info about the process described in the Link2SD thread)
then you can install Link2SD (free) from the link below,this app can move application file,dalvik-cache and library files.internal data such as downloaded game data can be moved but you need to buy the pro version(it's better to use FolderMount for moving internal data to avoid running out of free space in your microsd's second partiton).

hello, I appreciate this, but something goes wrong with my xperia zr, I made the partition, then reboot, and start the Link2SD again, then it seems to work because it asked me to select the partition, the menu to select was like ext2, ext3, ext4, fat32, etc, then I choosed ext4.
immediately it asked to reboot, but now I have a constantly loop... do you know how can I fix this? thanks so much.
