Default No App to SD function?

I just got my Rush a couple days ago and a brand new 16gb micro sd card for it. However I became pretty upset when my phone wouldn't allow me to move my apps to my sd card. Anyone know why this is or if there's a way around it? Seems almost pointless for a smartphone to even have a micro sd slot if the user isn't able to move installed apps to it.

You could always root it, and then use titanium backup to force to the SD card. Otherwise I believe it is up to the developer whether you can move the app to the sd card.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it. Has it worked for anyone else?
@TrayDiva: I'll try to figure out on Titanium and let you know .

First, on the rush you have an internal SD card and ext. SD card, you have to go to your file manager and move your apps manually, it doesn't affect the operating of the app. Everything will work as usual.

I was disappointed to not see this option either.

And I see some file manager suggestion. Where is the file manager? I have nothing named that.

since /data/media and /mnt/sdcard are the one and same mount point, apps2sd is rendered obsolete.

the portion of the app that apps2sd would move is already on the card


in fact, to test this, I just used titanium pro to move "angry birds star wars" and didn't gain a single Mb of free space in internal memory.

I like apps. My phone is running out of space fast because of this fact. Do I need to learn how to live with only a few apps or can I utilize the big 'ol sd card I purchased in advance thinking I could use Droidsail?

If you have root, this app might work:
Link2SD https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.buak.Link2SD

Note: You'll need to add a partition to your sd card for the apps.. instructions are in the app description on Google Play.

I haven't tried this, so I don't know if it works.. I just ordered my sd card from Amazon and is in the mail.

Ooh, I'm going to try this method later today. It sounds promising. What's the deal with the whole internal and external sd card anyway?

Thanks for testing!! I got my card then found out that I need a micro sd card reader for my PC.. I bought on Amazon and is on its way. I was wondering what type of partition you used and how big you made it.

Thanks,
Tesla

Okay, I read this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1432459

EDIT: I had my stupid dang popup blocker on. It was stopping the hyperlink box from popping up.

2gb seemed to be the size of partition suggested in the thread that I read so that's what I went with. After researching I went with Ext2 because it seemed like a safe bet and thus far it seems like the right choice.
