    Hai, when i try to move some apps to sdcard, the move to sdcard button is disabled. Like for Facebook, Google +, some games etc., which are very large in size and grabbing my Samsung grand2 internal memory. Kindly suggest me a solution. Thank you.

      Hey Srinivas ,
      As I told you in the post that it depends upon the design of a particular application that it can be moved to SD card or not. That’s why you can’t move every application to the SD Card.
      So try to move all the other movable apps to SD Card and you will left with some of these Immovables apps and will have enough memory to accommodate them.
