    Hi, i have downloaded the apps to sd app, and i was frustrated how little apps will actually move to the card, alright its free'd up 64mb on the phone but this will not take much filling

    why cant more apps be moved across?

    The app developers need to update their code so that the 'Move to SD' feature can be used, be patient :) Besides, clearing 64mb of additional internal storage is excellent!

    Because they all need updating by the devs to allow Move to SD... Also there are some apps that will never be movable, these are anything that runs in the background and any widgets .

    The reason being that if you plug the phone into your PC in disk mode or unmount\remove the SD then the apps that rely on it will crash.

    Edit: lol you beat me to it this time :p

    not anything that runs in the background, things that need to run constantly in hte background, apps like this are very rare
