New Galaxy S4 update will allow you to install apps on SD card


Rumour has it that a new update set to begin rolling out to Samsung’s flagship S4 will bring with it the ability to allow users to install apps to their microSD card. This will be a huge relief for S4 owners who are struggling with space on there S4 due to its poor 8.5GB of issuable space on the 16GB model. Samsung had previously defended this saying that the reason for the lack of space is due to the more powerful features but users across the world are not amused.

According to SamMobile the update is starting to roll out to German users today via Kies (the PC software) and will also be available as an OTA (over The Air) update. The update will also increase the amount of user available storage to 9.2GB which is still poor but at least Samsung are being pro-active. As an S4 owner I am delighted that I can now download some of the big games I have on my HTC One which can take over 1GB of space each.

The update will also bring with it a host of other tweaks including the ability to record high dynamic range video, a new camera firmware, a toggle for Smart Pause and some UI tweaks like a semi-transparent status bar as well as some new icons in settings.
