With the help of “adoptable storage” users can now install apps on a microSD card. Nook 7” supports up to 128GB external storage.
After inserting a memory card in the slot, go to device setting “Storage & USB” and select microSD card followed by SD card setting. In memory card settings select “Format as Internal” option. Follow the prompts and it’s done. Now your device will use external memory as native storage of the device.
According to 9To5Google, once you enable “adoptable storage” option, the memory card will not appear when you connect the device with PCs. Moreover, remember to switch off your device before removing the microSD card.
