In this article I’ll show you how to set the external memory card as default location to install android application. The following test is performed on MicroMax Funbook. The tablet comes with the internal capacity of four 4GB only. Among which to 2GB is locked and not accessible to the user. So in this article I’m going to show you how to install application directly in the microSD card so that the internal ROM is not used entirely and your operating system get enough space for updates and fresh installation.

By default android devices does not come with settings that can allow you to install applications in a microSD card. It is shocked to find that the manufacturer is not adding any kind of option which can allow us to modify the storage for installation location of application. But with the help of some basic application or hacks began said the external HD card as default installation location for android devices. It is a very basic application and it void warranty

To move ahead you will need to download a very small file from the download link I had provided below. It is just 74KB file which is actually a directory find application which tells the android devices to install application on a microSD card not in the internal storage. So first get the application and copy that in your microSD card stock will move ahead with the entire process of modifying the application installation location. Remember that you will need to route your android smartphone for using this application. So this is beneficial for heavy videogames. For example if you download a game like FIFA or assassin Creed to move easily occupy around 150 to 200 MB of internal space.

The manual way of transferring all the application to the external storage is one of the best ways to avoid any error. Sometime you will need to move the game directory from internal storage to the external storage. And if you’re not aware about the exact location you can go on Google and find out detail information about the installation files. Just tap on any folder and select it to move like this:
