Samsung needs to address the issue of not being able to move apps to external storage on the a21. This has never been an issue with other models. This is not an issue with the app developer or Android. This is a design flaw made by Samsung. Why would they do this on purpose and how will they fix it? People need to be able to move apps to their SD card. Not having this capability will cause Samsung to loose money. So contact some development design engineers working for Samsung and get an update pushed out to address this issue. If not millions of people will never buy another Samsung phone or product ever again.

Hello, I understand how frustrating it is not being able to move apps to the SD card. US variant Samsung phones do not offer the ability to use Adoptable Storage, or in more plain terms the ability to use the SD card as internal storage. Additionally, not many app developers allow their apps to be used on external storage devices like the SD card. Not all apps can be moved. To move an app to the SD card got to Settings>Apps>Locate the app you want to move<Select Storage<There should be an option there to change the storage (If available)

Are you not able to move ANY apps? Or is it specific apps? On my tablet I'm not allowed to move certain apps to my SD card like Hulu.

I am having the same issue.  I can't move ANY apps at all.  I can only put pictures on the SD card.
