  • PDF

Since applications take up room in your Galaxy Tab's precious base memory you may consider moving some of your lesser used or larger applications to the SD card. That increases the amount of storage you have for your Tab. The type of SD card for Samsung Galaxy Tab is a MicroSD or MicroSDHC card up to 32GB in size.

  4. Tap Manage Applications.
  5. Tap the application you wish to move.

If you get an error message "Failed to move application" the app you tried to move is probably included with the ROM of your device and cannot be moved.
