SD storage issues

After repetitive transfers of Apps to my SD storage, initial transfer is successful, however a couple of days later they reappear back in my device. This becomes annoying at the least, why do I continuously have to keep repeating this process? Galaxy S7

You might try using AppMgrIII.  It notifies you of apps that can be stored on the card and moves them to the card.  I have never had an issue with the apps moving back.  Even with AppMgrIII, when apps originally stored on the card are updated and installed, you have to move them to the card again.

You could also consider using the current Android OS as it was designed by Google and keep the applications installed on the internal memory space of the device.

You are absolutely correct.  The problem is the S7 came with limited internal memory compared with newer phones.  Without the card, I would have very few apps on my phone.
