I am not getting why inspite of having a 16 GB SD card in my android the apps from play store are not getting directly stored in SD card by default. Due to this its becoming hard for me to use the device as every time I have to flush lots of data from the device memory to install some new app.

Some ROMS have an option Default Write Disk (or something similar) under Storage settings, change that to External memory.
