Question about Tablets & eReaders
For Android users, get the app Android Assistant and run it, use the Tools tab and choose the tool named "APP2SD" and choose an app from the list. When the app description appears, click on the STORAGE button and then click on CHANGE and click on SD to move the app from "Internal" to "SD card". Wait for the app to finish being moved, then back out to the list of apps that can still be moved to the SD card and do the next app. Be aware that when apps get updated, they will move back to the internal memory, so I usually check with APP2SD about once a week and move things as needed to my SD card. For space on my SD card, I chose a 128GB micro SD card and I've only filled it about 1/4th of the way over the past year. This is the safest way to move things because Android Assistant will only list the apps that can be safely moved to the SD card. Some built-in phone apps must stay on the phone's internal memory to keep working, and those cannot be moved and won't be shown by the APP2SD tool.
The Android Assistant also has a "Cache Clear" option on the Monitor tab that helps free up internal memory on your phone when you run it (cache clear). The app (Android Assistant) may tell you it needs access to stuff so it can clear the cache. Do what it says to give it access, then go back and tell it to clear cache and it will free up some more internal memory. Cache items will be refilled as and when each app gets used, so if memory runs short again, you might need to do this "as-needed".
I paid the cheap price for Android Assistant Pro so I wouldn't accidentally click on advertisements that pay for the free version. It find the app very helpful.
TIP: You can also set MANY apps to PUT their things directly to the SD card instead of internal memory! Yay! I did this with my camera app and it REALLY helps by having photos and videos sent directly to the SD card so I don't have to keep moving them around.

On the next screen you've got the list of downloaded apps just clik on one of them and then properties screen come up on which in the second row you will see button move to sd card. Just press on it wait few seconds and your apps is moved. Repeat this for every app but bear in mind that some of the apps can't be moved to sd card Regards

There are 2 storage in just about every smartphone or tablet. There is an internal storage, usually about 1gb. or 2gb. And there an internal SD storage, which is not same as the external micro sd card. RAM stands for Read Access Memory, it will not work as storage. Now, when you download an app it is usually save in the internal storage. If you move an app without an external micro sd card inserted, you are moving them to the internal SD storage. If possible got to setting>storage and check how is the storage divided, if you insert the external micro sd card it should display 3 separate bars. Also, another way to move apps and other things around is by using ES File Explorer. Check that out first and I hope you do resolve the problem, best of luck.

Depends upon the app. Just as in cell phones, some apps can be shifted over to the SD card, some cannot. You must go to app management menu and see if the option to move to the SD card is active.

please remember the purpose of having a external micro sd memory in a tablet is mainly for media/ work / school purposes. most your going to be able to put on the cards is information relative to what i just told you and application that you have download from your APPLICATION STORE depends on the OS ( operating system you have on your tablet will determine how you can move them from your tablets internal memory to the tablets external sd card memory
here is a bing search on how to move items from internal memory to external for both tablets and phone. i suggest you watch multiple videos and refine your search based upon your OS and continue to search.
