    you have to use the stock app My Files. The sd card shows as extSdCard. I not found a way to move apps to or from the sd card.

    You can't move apps to the SD card on the S3. It's not the first Android phone as of late to not support it. If you look at the file structure of the device, the internal storage is called "sdcard" while the actual sdcard is called "extSdCard." That's what the message you saw is referring to - the actual SD card isn't considered to be primary storage by the OS. It's just secondary storage for personal files (music, movies, documents, etc.). Google has been trying to get manufacturers to move away from including a SD card slot altogether, so we'd lucky to have it at all. But as of right now, you can't install apps to it.
