It is a part of the Storage Saver, or Liberating memory, a tool developed by Samsung R&D in India. Use: release the internal memory of your mobile phone, moving photos from WhatsApp to the SD memory.

even Though WhatsApp recently has given us more control over the imprint that you leave on our mobile phones, including the ability to control and clear the data of certain chats easily, at the time of the truth WhatsApp ignores the SD card and store everything in the internal memory. This small tool, Samsung attempts to solve the problem.

do I have this in my mobile?

Move to SD Card seems to be included in some Samsung phones, if you don’t have an official way to turn it on, because it does not show in the app drawer. To check if you have it, you’ll have to go to Settings – Applications-enable Show applications, and search memory Optimizer. Keep in mind that if your mobile is in English, it will be displayed as a Storage Saver.


what if you don’t have it? In such a case, it will always be APK, although we cannot guarantee that it will work on all Samsung phones. The version from APKMirror requires Android Lollipop, although the latest versions need a Nougat or higher.

How to enable this function

As mentioned before, this memory optimizer is a little bit for free and it integrates with Smart Manager (or Maintenance of device, as it is now called). The only way to activate it is launch your activity applications such as the Quick Shortcut Maker or the same Nova Launcher.

In Nova Launcher, you must add a new widget of your own Nova (above), called Activities. It will take a while to load, but then you will see a list of the apps installed. There you will find memory Optimizer, tap the arrow icon to expand it and choose Move to SD card.


By the way, if you have curiosity of what the other features as APK residual, Applications, memory Optimizer or Program cleanup, unfortunately none of them can be launched except memory Optimizer (the one that has a distinct icon).

memory Optimizer shows you a list of duplicate images, a feature also present in Maintenance of the device, so you don’t have a lot of interest. After you create the shortcut, lor you can open it from the desktop, like any other application.

How to use


Opens the tool and you will see that very complicated it is not: just a button to activate the function in the installed applications are supported. These are WhatsApp, Messenger, Hike, Imo and JioChat, although in the application it shows only those that are installed.
