Step 1

Open the settings panel on your handset that you can find from the icon on your Home screen, app drawer or from your phone's Menu button.

Step 2

Now tap Applications, Apps, or Application Manager (depending on what you have on your handset). Scroll down to find it. Note that the label changes depending on the phone and version you are using.

Step 3

Now tap Manage Applications. If you are on Android 2.2, you will need to tap this to open your Applications list. If you are on a later version, you will already see your list of apps.

Step 4

Next, tap on the app that you want to move to SD card. There should be a button that says "Move to SD Card". Tap it to move the app. If the button is greyed out, it means the app does not support moving to the SD card. Also if the button is missing your version of Android and your phone do not support moving apps to the SD card.

Step 5

You should normally be done by now. But if not, you can download apps such as Link2SD that will allow you to quickly see which of your apps can be moved to the SD card.
