    Just curious to know, why when I use App2SD to move something from internal memory to my SD card, does the app size suddenly shrink from (for example for Air Control Lite) over 2 mB to 456kB?

    It means only 456kb is installed internally after the move, the rest is on your sdcard. Because of the way a2sd was implemented, some of the app must remain on internal memory

    Ah, I wondered about that, I though the APP2SD app would take everything across.

    I've removed a few items that I'd moved to my SD card but didn't really use, it cleared up a surprising amount of space.
