    help please...

    I have the VL PL7 and was wondering why my storage says internal -available-yada, below that another internal storage-available yada...then below that ext sd and available amt. which I am guessing this last one is my sd card..I move apps to my sd card, but the available amt doesn't change...so am I just moving to the internal storage...even tho it says move to sd card..unless I am reading wrong , which is very possible since I'm wrong a lot..lol..so if anyone can help...tia...

    On an Android device the internal storage is broken into two parts. /data is your user data, where apps install. The second part is the user storage, called /sdcard. So when you chose to move to SD you are still using the internal storage, not the external Microsd.

    Sure so long as the app you are using can browse to it. Most book readers and media players will let you. If you mean move app to it, that is different, yes and no. Stock you cannot. There are some apps, but that take partitioning the microsd on you PC and is a huge pain in the butt most times. The other option is to swap an edited file that replaces the path to the internal storage to the microsd. The only problem with that is the microsd has to stay in at all times after that or you don;t have access to the installed apps.
