Most apps do not natively install to an SD card when downloaded from the play store. You have to have an app like AppManager, that has a function to 'move' apps from internal storage to an SD card, or use a manual option in the Android Settings section to move each app individually.. If you are that tight on space that you cannot load any new app, you may have to delete or move something from your internal storage so you can download AppManager or some similar app, and then move as many apps as you can to your SD card. If you have a lot of photos and music you can try moving that to the SD card if your player/viewer software will allow you to find it there. Best way to move bulk items (music/photos, not apps) is to connect to a PC through USB, which brings up your internal storage and the SD card as external USB storage items. Then copy from internal storage to SD card through your PC. Best to establish folders on the SD card to hold these items and then tell your app where they are.

Why is my irulu x7 tablet so slow?


Try some highly rated free Android cleanup tools from Play Store.
I have a couple I use on my cell phone that work great. Android tablets are very similar to computers and can get clogged up with temp files and also corrupted clutter. CM security, Clean master, one tap boost.. These work nicely.. Or try Avast - I use it on my computers and phone.. It has coverage on about everything for protection.

Hope this helps to FixYa issue. Have a great night.

My pad says the internal storage is almost used up...I inserted an sd card, but not sure how to get the tablet to read it so that I'm able to install more apps and games.


Good afternoon Linda!

You can view your manual here
RCA RCT6077W2 Manuals . If you go to page 10
RCA RCT6077W2 User Manual Micro usb Headphone Micro Sd it notes a couple of important caveats on the card:
  1. You can use MicroSD or MicroSDHC type cards
  2. Size limit of 32GB
  3. You are warned never to insert or remove the MicroSD card in 'On' mode (i.e. only insert/remove the card when the tablet is off)
Aside from that, it looks like things should work. To be sure on what is the root of the issue, you can:
  1. Insert your card into another device to verify that it works
  2. Format or Re-Format the card - the SD Card association has a formatting app here:
https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4

  • Make sure the card is legit. If it was purchased, for instance, off of Ebay, or other not-so-top-tier online store, as likely as not it's a fake made in China, likely with guts from manufacturing rejects. You might, for instance, get a card marked 32Gb that actually has a 2Gb chip in it with a hacked controller that says it's 32Gb. It'll seem to work OK for a few files, and at some point will just write your files into no-where. SD Insight, a free checker app for Android phones can be picked up here

Hoping this helps!

I inerted a 32gb SD card and nothing happened so I popped it out anthem I could not get it to pop ck in tablet said new SD card???


When you insert an SD card in the slot the tablet will *mount* it automatically. This means it connects to it and formats it and adds some files and folders so it can utilize it.

Before you remove it you need to go to Settings>Storage>External SD and touch the *unmount* option.

If you don't do this there is a chance the card can be corrupted and can become unusable. If the tablet said new SD card then you might have to go into Settings>Storage>External SD and touch the *Mount* option.

If it's a new SD card chances are you didn't hurt it. But if it's a use one on which you had a lot of data stored and you didn't unmount it before removing it you could have damaged the file structure and your only option to get it back would be to put it into a card reader on a laptop or desktop and reformat it.

How do I get my micro sd card to work on my MiTraveler tablet


You will have to add an app at the play store. There are many, one that I have used is called send to card. Remember to turn off your device before removing your sd card.

This tablet has 2 lots of memory,one called endeavour which has 4.83gb,and one called internal which has 142mb free.I want to update a few apps but it tells ,e I haven't got enough room! How can I upd


not exactly sure - but some tablets designate internal stg for the operating system and built-in apps and data such as address book or contacts, the settings app, etc. the endeavor stg may be the remaining available for your apps, data and media. Some updaters require extra working room to update an app - look in your settings and see if you set a default location for the apps and media you install. Another thing you can try is to delete the app and then reinstall it from the play store, the reinstall should grab the latest version. It also looks like you can add memory via SD card - probably a micro SD - 16gb is fairly inexpensive. Insert the card then mount it - look in your settings to see if you can set it as your default location or if it is offered as a choice when attempt to install an app. Some operating systems only allow media such as music, photos and videos to be stored on SD card memory - if possible, do a google search for your tablet model to find a manual.

How can I play Simpsons tapped out it plays on another one I have


If you are referring to being able to download it from the Play Store then you might be out of luck. Each tablet reports its specifications to the Play Store and the Play Store will only show apps that your device is deemed able to run.

In this case you could try searching for and installing an apk file which is the installation file for the game and install it manually. There is a chance that these files downloaded from the Internet could carry a virus or other malware so beware. You also need to go into Settings/System/Security and check "Unknown sources" to install an apk. That's a safety step to try to stop you from installing malware.

The other option is to try a different app store - you could go into Google Play, install Aptoide and install the game from there (may or may not work).

I have just received a 32Gb RAM stick and wish to max out the RAM in my iRulu 10.1" tablet. How badly will I bend the warranty if I pop the case and - the onboard RAM is organized/implemented as suspect...


There should be a SD or MicroSD slot on the outside of the case, this will not void the warranty. The internal storage is most likely soldered on and not removable. Use the built in features of Android or an app like Link2SD to move apps to your expansion SD card.
