Samsung Galaxy S4 update opens up move to SD

Posted on Sunday, July 14th 2013 at 10:24 a.m.

So the Galaxy S4 has been the center of attention lately because the included software leaves users with approximately 9GB of free space out of the 16GB after all is said and done.  The problem is that with Jellybean Google has disabled the ability to move application data to the SD card.  If you download a couple large games, maps for a GPS, or like to have a lot of apps, you may find that you can run out of space faster even with a large SD card.

Over the course of the next couple days, Galaxy S4 owners on Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon will get an update that will unlock app storage on the SD card and will also include security suite Samsung Knox.  If you were waiting for the Galaxy S4 32GB to come to Verizon, you really won’t have to wait anymore.  With the ability to move apps to the SD card, just get a big enough SD card and your worries are over.

Bravo Samsung, and thanks to Google for allowing phone makers the freedom to unlock stuff like this when necessary!
