Because of the way they mount SD cards, many Android manufacturers won’t let you run apps from the SD card – you can’t on some of the Galaxy phones, for instance. In part this is for performance reasons, and in part because the SD card is outside the walled world of your Google account which may make permissions tricky.

This isn’t the case with all Android phones, however. If you can move apps to your SD card, the process is likely to be something like this: go to the Apps menu, find the app you want to move. Then through that particular App’s settings, select move to SD card.
