Swipe left to the SD CARD tab and then select the app you want to move to the SD card.

• The SD Card tab shows only apps that can be moved to the microSD card, allowing for faster navigation.
• A green check mark indicates the app has been moved to the microSD card.
Touch MOVE TO SD CARD. If an app is already on the microSD card, you can touch MOVE TO DEVICE STORAGE.

• Do not navigate away from the App info screen while data is being moved between SD card and device storage.
• If you are receiving an error message when attempting to move data, follow the steps below.
Go to Settings > Storage > Unmount SD card.
