SOURCE: Storage space for downloading

You need to move most of the apps from the phone's memory to the SD external memory.

SOURCE: Insufficient space on external storage

On an Android phone or tablet, you can't install apps in the external memory (SD card) These cards are for pictures, music and video, you want to take with you. Not as an extension of the maim memory.
Apps only run in the intern memory. Messages also can be stored in internal memory. Sorry.

My tablet keeps giving me error message. Insuficcant space on tablet to download apps


This means the internal memory is full and the only way to add apps is to uninstall other apps that you have installed. Check to see if you have apps you no longer use and uninstall them.

Hasn't saved anything to the memory card because his tablet won't allow him to .. It keeps saying not enough space it's a 8GB memory card


The internal memory cards of some Android devices are partitioned for app storage and installation. Some of them have partitions that are quite small such as one Gigabyte or smaller. The remainder of the storage cannot be used for apps.

If it keeps saying not enough memory space then chances are the app partition is full. The only way to free up some space is to uninstall some apps that are stored there but not being used. You can see which apps can be uninstalled in Settings > Apps and look at them one by one to see if an uninstall option is listed. Simply click *uninstall* to remove them from the app storage partition. This will free up some extra space for some new apps or for updates to older apps you still like and use.

Also some of the apps might show an option to move them to an external SD card (if your device has a slot for one and if an SD card in inserted therein). Do move any and all to the external SD card of you have that option as that will also free up that space from the internal SD card.

How does ram vs internal storage work on tablet?


There are 2 storage in just about every smartphone or tablet. There is an internal storage, usually about 1gb. or 2gb. And there an internal SD storage, which is not same as the external micro sd card. RAM stands for Read Access Memory, it will not work as storage. Now, when you download an app it is usually save in the internal storage. If you move an app without an external micro sd card inserted, you are moving them to the internal SD storage. If possible got to setting>storage and check how is the storage divided, if you insert the external micro sd card it should display 3 separate bars. Also, another way to move apps and other things around is by using ES File Explorer. Check that out first and I hope you do resolve the problem, best of luck.

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.

How to fix space problems on alcatel one touch pixi I have 8gig memory card and when I download it says not enough space please help me


Dear friend by default android installs all the apps at the internal phone storage and not the external sd card. So basically you have two options:
1 - delete some applications you don't use (old games and programs you don't use regularly )
2 - try to search google play store for app to sd (i am not recommending that option because 1 - you might need root ; 2 - some applications wont work if installed at the external storage )

Why can't I install app. after they are downloaded


What messages are you getting when trying to install? The app is not necessarily installed to the memory card automatically. Check your settings. How much internal storage space does it show? The app might be too big for the space you have left. You could try to free up some space by moving some installed apps to the SD card.

Internal storage and external storage on your sd card are two different things.

Tablets have internal storage and external SD cards (optional) storage. Apps will download to the internal storage. So under Settings > Storage make sure you have space on your internal storage.
