Need more storage for apps on ZTE Maven 3

I have a ZTE Maven 3 and I have memory card installed. Is there anyway I can get more storage to be able to download more apps?  I read somewhere about formatting my SD card but I don't know if that will work or what it means. Can you buy an app to be able to have more storage in your account or can you even download apps in the online storage. I've deleted some of my apps that I've needed because my phone has gotten very slow.

There isn't one...  ZTE and ATT have blocked installation of apps on SD card on the Maven series...  You get what you pay for...

Found a way to do it. 1st ... reformat or format your sd card to read as internal. This will give you additional space for use in app storage (but not much.) I was able to add a few before it said I was low on app storage again  BUT then I discovered a new trick! Go ito settings/ apps/ select a big app that you do not need that is using space, such as (In my case) My AT&T because I just got this crap GSM phone to use on an overseas trip where my Verizon CDMA phone won’t work. But there are several other bloatware apps you can pick. Select the app, slide down to app details. If it says (installed from Play store,) select that and then select uninstall. If it is bloatware, it will not actually be uninstalled but you will see that the size will be reduced from say, 125 MB to 108 or so KB. If you can find several of these big apps you don’t need, it may free up enough space (did for me) to install a few apps you know you need, for example United Airlines.
