My insignia tablet will not let me move anything anywhere.
I bought a new SD card tonight and I don't even see an option to move it in the settings/apps section. Going into files and trying to move it doesn't work either. I can push copy, move, and anything else to no avail. What can I do?

the SD is only if you have downloaded the proper OS and have it on an SD, then when it resets it will look at the SD and install the software, and it better be the correct version!
Typically you dont have to use the SD card as it's almost always part of the tablet or phone to have the operating system backup so choose option 1, you cant do any harm unless you download the incorrect version of software and install it, which may "brick" it, or render tablet useless.
Usually, in the app management section, under each application, there will be an option to move it to the SD card if one is installed. Be advised though, that many apps are not written to be used with SD cards, so for those apps, the option to move will be greyed out. Some allow the data for the app to be on the card, but not the app itself. Others can be completely moved. You will probably be disappointed, as the majority of us have been, at how few apps you can move to an SD card. Mostly, you find it is convenient for storing your photos and not much else.
That is not an easy thing to do. The best you can do is download the apps to the internal memory and then touch them one by one and see if there is an option to MOVE them to the external SD card. It has been my experience that not very many can be moved.
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.
You really should check the manual, to see how to move or to install the apps on the SD card. Not all Android tablets and phones work the same. You not giving any detail of yours does not make this easier.
Some systems can install the apps on the SD card and they can run from the card. Others only allow you to put apps on the SD card, but before you can use them, you have to install them in the internal memory.
Again, check the manual.
I just came from CIA where I bought my fondi tablet. The guy I spoke to said there is a safety feature build in to this android 4.4 fondi tablets. You can't store apps on your SD card, only music, photo's, videos, ect. I personally don't like it. It feels like I wasted my money.
from "manage space" send it to sd card. Many apps are not permitted to be moved to sd card if you still want to remove then "root" your android device and get whatever you want. But first know everything about "root" then go for it. If you know what is rooting then you can do anything with the android device even making a app a system app, controlling frequency of your processor and many more!!
