How To Transfer Apps From Internal Memory To SD Card in Android

By Harsh Vardhan (Facebook) (Twitter)

Android is a big thing now. Almost the ratio of people using this Mobile Operating System to other OS has increased a lot. Now, many don't have high end phones such as Samsung Galaxy S III, II or Note,etc...But many of us have low end good android phones. Now the problem starts when your internal memory is full and it cant take any more apps. Generally the apps we download goes to the internal memory which causes the internal memory to get full. And even the phone starts working slow. So what to do now? Satisfied with deleting less used apps now we introduce some way to transfer to your SD card. I hope everyone knows what a SD Card is!
People feel worried about doing such things and avoiding such modification on their phone.
But trust me we here try to explain you everything so clearly so that you don't mess up with any thing that would screw your phone.

Now the method explained below requires Rooting. Well, don't worry if your phone is not rooted then let us know your model number and phone specifications so that we can lead you to root your phone first and then allow you to perform above said operation. you can use the comment section.
However there are other method in which we don't even require rooting but i find this better and will explain later why its better preferred to non rooting system of transferring apps.

Please note again Root access is required ...

How to move applications & games data to external SD card on Samsung Galaxy S3?
I take my Samsung Galaxy S3 as example. It should work on rooted Android phone with external micro SD card. Old Gameloft games data are stored at /mnt/sdcard/. However, latest Gameloft games data are stored at /mnt/sdcard/Android/data/ just like other Android applications and games. With Directory Bind, you can move one folder by one folder to external storage at /mnt/extSdCard/. I won’t move all applications and games data in Android/data folder to external micro SD card because it is much slower compare to internal memory. Therefore, I only move those unimportant or less frequent used applications and games to external storage with Directory Bind.
