What device do you have? Some can allow apps to SD others can't.

OP, what version of the OS Are you running? FWIW, it helps to put this info in your bio.

Ultimately, you're going to need to triage which apps you want to keep the most. That being said, there are things you can do.

1. You can move apps, that have the feature enabled, over to your SD card. It's not a complete migration, but it can free up some room. This app may help.

2. Make sure that you're storing media (pictures, music, etc) on your SD card.

3. You can follow the steps listed here to clear the cache memory stored on your device.

I don't think you can, IIRC. You have to move them over after installation.

as far as I know you can not increase your internal memory, but there are some solutions, for example you can use programs which enable you to install program data on external memory, hence saving some internal memory space, also if you have a good internet connection you can use some cloud storage which does not consume your phones memory, but you can access your files whenever you want.

see the steps that listed above. It won't increase the amount of total storage in your device, but it might free up some space.

No promises, but there's a description of a method for using adb to change the default install location of an app without root in the Galaxy Ace forum here. There are also similar threads in a few other device forums.

What it basically comes down it is:

Install drivers for your phone on your PC.

Install ADB on your PC - you can also find information about that here.

Use a couple of simple commands to change the default location to sd (location 2 - if I remember correctly 0 is default, 1 is internal. 2 is definately sd).

No promises, but may be worth a go. Note that apps that are already installed won't move automatically, you'll still have to move them by hand if you want to.

If your not really using certain apps, but want to keep them to install later, this is install an app like, AppSavor, which will allow you to save the apk files, of the apps., to your SD card. (Make sure that your phone can install from "unknown sources".) If not, this won't work.

Also, clearing out the caches on apps is a must as well. I use "Quick App Manager" which clears the caches on apps I pre-selected, on a schedule. You'll be surprised after a whole month of Internet usage how big the cache files are.

But you can, sort of. Uninstall all the updates to force-fed apps, like Maps and Street View and all that stuff. Works for me...
