Can I Install Apps on a Phone's SD Card?

Episode 1612 (59:50)

Joe from Tampa, FL
Android

Joe has trouble with apps he installs on his microSD card. When will Android fix this? Leo says that apps will always work better on the internal memory. Save the SD card for larger files like photos, videos, and music. Because Android doesn't like the SD card for apps, and Google is starting to lock it down for anything other than storage. In fact, Google no longer allows SD cards for storage on their own phones. Also, apps have to support it, and Android isn't really letting developers do it.
