hudl2 how to move apps to sd?

Hi was hoping someone good with technology could help me here. I purchased the hudl2 for my son with a 32 GB SD but after a few days of adding apps got the memory almost full warning checked settings and everything on the tablet has stored to internal memory. Tried everything I can think of there's no options to move games or apps. called tesco tech today and was told external SD is only for photos of videos I own. anything else is copyright protected so you canmot move apps to your SD? I'm not great with this stuff but that's sounds like a load of rubbish to me. any help would be great thanks

Unfortunately they are right. You can't move apps on the SD card.

OK thanks was hoping they were wrong! iv watched loads of vids on how to do it thru file manager but it so complicated

i also have the hudl2 (excellent value tablet :-)).
this is due to the android operating system.
you used to be able to move most apps to an SD card, but not any more.
there are some apps in the Play Store that claim to be able move apps to an SD card (the reviews indicate they can), but the couple I looked at require the device to be 'rooted' first.

Re being copywright etc.the sony xperia m2 kitkat 4.4.2 now lets you move some apps to sd card.it is kitkat design ,but sony firmwear lets you move apps .

I read online some tablets come with there own file manager to make this possible but not the hudl2 shame its seems a good tablet but as I'm only using it as a gaming device for my son its a big let down thanks for your replys

My niece originally had an Acer Iconia tablet (Santa got her the Hudl 2) which wouldn't let me move apps either. I used Astro File Manager to copy/paste many files to the SD, and it worked! Not the most convenient solution but may do the trick. Not tried it on the Hudl 2 yet.

Probably will improve with Lollipop.

doubt it, don't think original hudl got any os updates so would be surprised to see tesco do it on the hudl 2. Having similar problem as got one for grandfather's Christmas along with card to find Google camera app won't save to SD card.

Can be done if you root your device.

. thanks I'll give that one a try from what iv read it seems you need to root it to use these file management apps but I don't want to break the warranty and I don't actually know what rooting is haha thanks

Wish I could report back and tell you for sure...my sister is about ten miles away But I will definitely try it next time I'm visiting

How about just uninstalling apps your not using? Then if you want them again just download them again takes seconds to do.

Have a look at this;

Not sure if it will work on a Hudl2.

As said already its needs to be rooted, also you can use file manager even if the device is not. Rooting the device renders the warranty void. However the rooting process can sometimes be undone, it all depends on the popularity of the device and how many people request that someone who knows what they are doing comes up with a program to do sucha thing.

you can install file managers on unrooted devices but the app only gets access to a limited set of locations. on rooted devices, the app can read and write to any location.
