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.
Open Terminal Emulator and check with the 'df' command, how much space is left on your partitions. Is /data or /system full?
Goto system/apps/all > 'Sort by size to' find out which apps eat
up the most space.
Check if you have big size apps installed where you could change data location within the app to sdcard. Thinking of navigation apps and games. Every app where you have to download additional data to the actual app.
Make sure you use the sdcard for media like photos (camera settings) music and video.
CM has a built-in system to move apps to SD under settings/apps/on sdcard. Check apps that are big and you use rarely and are not interactive first. Reason: If you still use the USB feature those moved apps are not available to system anymore and are least likely to cause trouble.
Another option is to use the app Foldermount. Use it to move certain locations to SD like the Download folder. Or the DCIM folder if the camera doesn't support sdcard location in settings.
Use the app Link2SD which is able to move every bit from an app (including app data) to SD. It has a good overview on how much space an app really needs. You will have to create a separate partition on the SD card for that to work.
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.
You might want to free up internal storage space on your android tablet. You can do this by moving some apps to an SD card that you have installed. Go to your app drawer, tap and hold on an app, and drag it to "App Info". Then tap move to SD card. Another way to free up space is to uninstall apps that you don't use anymore. If that still doesn't work, try installing a storage cleaning app. I would recommend SD Maid by darken. Hope this helped!
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.
