Hello! Had a question for anyone on here. I have a Samsung A11 and have turned on developer mode in order to allow me to enable external storage for apps. Despite enabling this function, I can find no option to allow me to move a single app over to my SD card. Am I missing something or is there  legit a developer option that has no connection to the capabilities of the phone itself? I hope I didn't waste my money on an SD card! If anyone has a solution I'm missing that would be very helpful.

App developers decide whether or not their applications can be used externally from the device. When the application can indeed be used externally, you will see an option in the app manager to Move to SD. However; Samsung does not use adaptable/adoptable storage features so often times, you are unable to use apps from an external source.

Good evening! No experience with the A11 and I don't know where all you've checked, but on my phone (A51) hold the app icon until a pop-up appears. Hit app info, then storage. This is where the option to move the app to the SD card will appear if it's available. Hope this helps!
