App 2 SD for Android helps you install more apps


So you’ve got an Android device, running Android 2.2 or up, and you want to move some of your apps to your SD card, but you don’t want to start digging around in your settings. What’s an Android enthusiast to do? How about going and downloading App 2 SD? This app allows you to have a UI for the built-in storage choice of internal or external. All you have to do is install this app on your Android phone running 2.2 or higher, and it will tell you what apps you have installed that can be moved to external storage. Sure, you can do this through the settings menu on Froyo or above, but this will make your app moving much easier.

On top of giving you the UI for your already installed devices, the app will also run in the background, and – when you install an app that can be moved to the SD card – will tell you so in your notification bar. Hit the break for all the features, and be sure to check out App 2 SD on our app database here.

Apps 2 SD includes the following features;

  • list movable apps
  • move one or all apps to SD card
  • clear app cached files with 1 tap
  • show app used size
  • show storage total/available size
  • list non-movable apps
  • move app to the internal storage
  • view app on Market
  • uninstall app
  • open app
  • show app details page
  • notify if movable app installed

The Pro version is available for $.99 in the Android Market, but the only difference is there aren’t any ads. The Free version listed here has full features from above. Worth every penny to save some storage and download the latest Madden 11 game to your SD!

    May not need it on froyo, but it makes app management a lot easier. Helped me quickly identify the high value targets for moving.

    “So you’ve got an older Android device, not running Android 2.2 or up…”

    Isn’t 2.2 the minimum requirement for this app to function?

    Please don’t get your hopes up, the author of this article clearly made several mistakes, and actually thought someone made a magical app that could mysteriously make the android os (versions prior to froyo, 2.2) do something it was designed not to do (like I said, until this feature was added in 2.2).

    To the author,

    Please know your tech before posting something like this. Your simply discrediting this site, not to mention making all the poor people out there reading this (who couldn’t get it to work) beat their heads because they think they’re doing something wrong. Truth being said, this app won’t work unless you have froyo (2.2).
