Apps keep getting installed on my internal storage when I would much rather they be on my much larger SD card that is formatted as internal memory. Is there a way to tell my phone to move a bunch of Apps at once?


Sorry its not possible with rooting the device either. As PlayStore firstly download the application to your internal memory without seeing your settings whether you want your application on your internal or external. From that state it can be moved from internal storage to external storage if application permits itself.

You can think it as an restriction posed by Google.
