How Do I Move Apps on My Samsung Galaxy S5 Active to a microSD™ Card? (SM-G870A)

Save storage on your device by moving Android™ apps to your microSD™ card.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

    1. From your Home screen, touch Apps.

    2.  Navigate to Settings Apps Application manager.

    3. Then, select the app you would like to move to your microSD™ card.

    4. After making your selection, touch Storage > CHANGE. 

    5. Touch SD card to move the selected app to your microSD™ card.
