How do I move all of my apps to the SD card on Android phone?

I have a Galaxy SIII running 4.4 KitKat. It will allow me to move a few apps to the SD card, but not all. Not to be a glass half empty person, but it would be helpful to be able to move more of the apps; there is only so much internal storage. Why can’t I move all of my apps? Is there a way to move more of them?

You can transfer only certain Apps authorized to be transferred from SD Card to internal storage. I've had bad experience when tried this once.

Once I transferred game of 1.64 GB from SD Card to internal storage just to free up some card space. However, run into a situation after resetting my phone that the game is not available on the phone memory and not on the SD card either.

I'd better recommend you to transfer only files instead of apps to free up space of SD card.

Hope it helps though!!

For some reason, Google decided that only first party apps are able to be saved to the SD card in 4.4 KitKat. I root and use Link2SD to get around it and move all apps except system apps. SDfix does the same thing, but I haven’t tested it. Unfortunately, without rooting your device, you aren’t going to be able to get around the limitation on moving apps. I’m not sure why Google has such an aversion to SD cards, but they certainly seem to.
