Often, the makers of the app want to protect their intellectual property. Other times with an app like Frostwire, if you download something like an illegal copy of a movie, they intentionally delete the movie ( or music etc.) When and especially because you uninstalled their app. Obviously however, if you lose data that you shouldn't when restarting your device, then more than likely the app is flawed. This is why they update certain apps so often- to fix the bugs. In your case, it depends on what you stored "off device". Also, it could be a problem with your phone. Check the problem against another phone.

My tablet keeps giving me error message. Insuficcant space on tablet to download apps


This means the internal memory is full and the only way to add apps is to uninstall other apps that you have installed. Check to see if you have apps you no longer use and uninstall them.

How do I get all my apps on my sd card.


You can't the default is for the programs (apps) to install on the 'device', the tablet or phone. If you change devices, you back up the old one, and then Restore on the new one. You can't save apps except on the backup device, computer or Cloud storage, but not to a device like an SD card.

I have hipstreet pulse tablet how do I get y apps to go onto my micro sdcard


You don't. Most apps will not load onto an SD card. This is because that many SD cards are not fast enough to support the app's needs, and also the app writers don't go to the trouble of writing apps to be loaded on SD since not every tablet has one. SD cards are primarily for the use of storage of photos, music, and videos. A few apps CAN, if designated, store some data and cache info on the SD, but your issue should be with the tablet makers for not putting enough memory in the tablet itself in the first place. This is how they save money.

I have put 32 gb sd card into excelvan tablet for external storage and its not saving?


Unfortunately, most apps will not load onto an SD card. You'll find that some apps will, if a card is installed, place data there. Mostly the SD Cards are installed for use in storing photos and videos taken by the user with the tablet camera. Newer tablets and smartphones are coming with more and more internal RAM to alleviate the "full" issue, but in most cases, you wither have to give up the new app, or remove one to get another.

How do I make the SD card the peimary storage on my tablet?


If you have a later version of the Android O/S such as version 4.4.2, look in:

Settings> Storage and you should see a category called

*Default write disk* Under this will be listed:

*Internal Storage* and *SD card*.

Touch the little radio button to the right of *SD* card and it will turn blue. Apps will still be saved to the Internal Storage but pictures, videos, music, etc will then be saved on the SD card.

When I turn it off - it goes back to the original atatus - only thing saved is anything Google - but on the computer, mostly.


It sounds to me like the internal memory petition has gone bad. When this happens it will retain no changes and boots up like it was when new every time it's turned off. Any changes are only retained if you put it to sleep and keep it charged. If the memory partition for apps has gone bad it will no longer be able to download or update apps from the Store and you will be stuck with the original apps and that is all unless you can managed to download some apps to an external SD card in the slot (if it has one).

You can tell if your memory partition has gone bad by using
Settings > Storage and observe the top bar graph. if it's green all the way across and shows 0.00 bytes of storage then the internal SD card memory partition is gone or the memory is defective.

Even so, you should still be able to synch using Google to do so. But, never turn it off again or you will be back to square one again and will have to do everything over and over and over.

I have a Nobis NBO9 that has this same problem. They fixed it once but it went bad again two weeks later. And, they balked at fixing it a second time so I got ripped off. I suspect there is a lot of defective internal SD memory cards in circulation from the reports I see as I research these failures.

How to save video onto sd card


In the settings of the camera app it should have something called 'default save location' or 'Memory in use' set it to "Ext. SD" card. Most tablets have an internal SD so it is important that you select EXT SD card (external SD card).
If you have already found that setting, and 'Ext SD card' is not listed as an option, you need to format that SD in the tablet itself so it builds the folders it needs. Put it into a PC first though to copy off anything you need because formatting it will delete all data.
