    some apps are designed so that to be installed directly to sd card
    1)widgets should not be moved to sd because they cease to work
    2)on rooted phones system applications can be deleted or moved to sd, you can use link2SD
    S2E (simple2ext)

    Link2SD guide – never worry about internal memory limits again

    You need to root your phone to get your apps to SD card after every android 4.0 version....

    If you go into Settings, Manage Applications (or similar), abd select the app you wish to move, there may be an option to move the app to SD. Unfortunately, many versions of Android 4.1, and even 4.0 does not have this option. You would have to root your phone, reformat your SD card to have two primary partitions, then download and use an app like Apps 2 SD III to move the apps and data to your SD card.

    This can be a complicated process to accomplish (if your phone is supported for a simplified rooting process), but if you wish to have more information on how to root and setup your phone and SD card for moving the SD card, let me know.
