Samsung tab a - using sd card

I've read that you can add a micro sd card as extra memory to a Samsung galaxy tab a, but does anyone know if you can run apps and games directly from the sd card please? I think it'll be running marshmallow if that helps/matters.
Thanks

I've just bought the tab and I've been able to move some apps and games to the micro sd card but not all of them

It's the same with any tablet or phone. Some apps will support being moved onto an SD card whilst others don't.

It's down to the app not the machine or the version of Android. You can try apps like App2sd, that can sometimes move apps that the op system won't. But it is pot luck depending on what you have installed...

Ahh, ok, thanks guys. I'd read about when you first insert an sd card it'll ask whether you want it as storage or to format it as extra internal memory which then can't be removed. Hopefully the games (mainly) and apps my mum would want to use will work from an sd. I've gotten her a 16gb Samsung tab a and a iPad mini 2 32gb and just trying to decide which to keep for the best
