    You must be aware that Windows phone apps by default gets installed on internal memory.Even Google is pushing on internal memory as the primary storage for apps so you can see much higher internal memory and omission of SD card slot in many phones.

    In WP8(Windows Phone 8),one can put apps in SD card and can install it in internal memory.Moreover,there's a limit to it i.e. 10 apps.To do more,one would need a developer account.

    windows 8 phone it is not like android, on earlier versions like windows mobile 2003sz, could install applications on sd card, apparently now it is not the same because windows 8 architecture

    performance is not the same if application run from internal storage or from sd card

    How do I install apps from an SD card?

      App moved to sd card would generally run slower than that running from internal storage?

      it depends on how they are written, and some will be slow and some will not work since they are not written to work from sd card

      The first link I have given, is the appropriate link for your question. The other links are to gain further knowledge about WP8, specially the last one. :)

      Hello Rajaa,

      The first link is actually about installing apps from sd card not installing to sd card.
