Swap internal storage with external MicroSD card storage of your Android smartphone and save precious internal storage

Storage space is an existential problem if you own an Android smartphone. Even if you have MicroSD cards mounted on your smartphones, your internal memory will always be short because of the Apps are installed there and also the Apps use system’s internal memory to work or do particular tasks on your Android smartphone. As the internal memory is normally less compared to  the external storage we always find ourselves deleting Apps/WhatsApp images/videos and files to free up the precious space.
