I have the LG L70 running KitKat and this is the closest forum to ask this. So I get 1,5GB free storage space, and while I can move an app to the SD card after install, incl. the main app of Real Racing 3, but when I run it and it tries to download the 1722MB data package, it obviously says not enough space on the device internal storage. Which is true, but I have the darn SD card inside, how do I get the phone to download the data there?

I think that you have choose to download data in sd card in the game or have you selected install in external storage option in settings.

I don't see such an option. This could be a KitKat restriction, as I can't move say Type:rider to the SD, although I can move Speedtest for example. A silly thing (from Google) if there is no way, I have all the storage on my SD, but can't use it for large apps?

You need root access. First root ur device and install the "foldermount" app. Its an app that binds your obb or android data folder to your external sd. That's the only reason I'm rooted. The application won't ever brick your device. It free on playstore (u can purchase the premium version to support the developer and get extra features)
