    When you change phones, you can transfer apps easily

    Or you are someone that either has hundreds of apps or very large apps (some of the games can be pretty large) and you need the extra space to store them all.

    I would imagine it keeps from slowing down the phone, since you aren't using the available memory.

    My phone became MUCH more snappier after moving as many apps2sd as I could. Widgets, task bar gadgets, flash, and swype didn't work after moving. Everything else works without any difference.

    You can free up your phone memory, increase speed. I love it.

    What's the best way to move things over to the SD? AppBrain? Settings > Applications > Manage apps?

    NICE. I had just done the Settings > Applications > Manage apps route, but I downloaded app 2 sd, and it is much easier!

    thanks for the tip!
