    Installing apps on micro SD card

    Hello all,

    I would like to know if I root my TF101, is there a way to install my apps on the external micro SD card. I don't want to use it as just to store media but could use it for apps as well.

    Many thanks
    Jim

    Welcome to the forum!

    No, there is not a way to do this. Some ICS & JB devices have a way to do it through the Settings, but it is pretty much reserved for phones only, not tablets.

    One of the biggest issues is each OEM decides where the external storage mounts. Acer puts it in /mnt/External_SD/, Samsung puts it within the /sdcard/ directory, Asus puts it in the /Removable/ directory so it is hard for app developers to know where to access the external storage.
