The developers have to set a flag to allow it with their apps and not all do. You can try to force them with Apps2SD.

Just that if you force them, don't be too surprised if they may not work well, as there wont be any guarantee.

I think I read it somewhere else on this forum that it's not a good idea to try and move widgets to the SD card because the card isn't mounted until the phone has booted up, so the widget won't load from startup properly.

That's generally correct, if you are using widgets, you don't want their apps there because the launcher / desktop starts before the SD card is mounted.
