Installing apps to ext sdcard on s4

Hi,

Getting my new S4 this week. I want to start clean and install all the apps

I can to the external sd card. I have a class 10 64 gb card. 

My question is, can you install directly to the ext sd card when you initially 

install the app or do you have to install normally and then MOVE the app

to the ext sdard after installing?????

Thank in advance for any help,

                                              Ken

You will have to manually install the to SD card after you install the app to your phone... Though some apps can't be moved to SD card some apps will install to SD card anyways

Hi,

And thanks, that's what I thought!! So basically you install whatever apps I

want like normal. Then after they are installed on phone then you go to apps

and move all that can be moved. 

                 Thanks again,

You will have to update the phone with an OTA update for app to SD card support. I had to when I got my s4 last week
