Galaxy S3 Problem: How to transfer applications from phone’s memory to SD card?


Problem: I have been waiting for long to get a solution for the above problem, searching many websites but couldn’t find anything. All I found was A2SD which doesn’t work on S3. I’m a game freak & the applications have eaten away 90 percent of my phones’ memory.

Please, can you advise me with a solution?

You’re not the only one having this problem. In fact, all Galaxy S3 owners who updated their phones to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are currently looking for ways to move apps into their microSD card. But the thing is, it’s not possible to do so with the stock firmware.

The A2SD app would work if your phone was rooted. I’m afraid you don’t have any option but to root your Galaxy S3 and use A2SD app if you really need to move apps installed in your device’s internal memory into the external.

If you decide to root your phone, there are a lot of ways to root it. However, you couldn’t claim warranty if ever you damage your device along the process. There are always risks involved in rooting. But one of the best and safest ways is to use One Click Root tool, which can be download free. Here’s what you’ll have to do:
  1. Download One Click Root tool from its official website. [link]
  2. Connect your Samsung Galaxy S3 to your computer using the original USB data cable.
  3. Launch the rooting tool from your computer.
  4. Click “Root Now” button.
Yes, rooting is as easy as that.

There could be risks you’ll have to face after rooting your device, but it would also open Galaxy S3 to more possibilities and functionality and one of them is to be able to move installed apps to the microSD card.


Is there any way to move my apps/games without rooting ?
