Hi,

By default apps are loaded into the internal storage area.

It may be that the developer of the app, has decided (or omitted to decide) whether the app can be moved to the SD Card or not.

This link, for App developers, may be of interest regarding App Install location.

http://developer.android.com/guide/topic...

This quote is the first paragraph from the link:

''Beginning with API Level 8, you can allow your application to be installed on the external storage (for example, the device's SD card). This is an optional feature you can declare for your application with the manifest attribute. If you do not declare this attribute, your application will be installed on the internal storage only and it cannot be moved to the external storage.''

Hopefully this is of some help .
