    So I'm still kinda new to this, I have cyanogen 4.2.14? Mod if that makes a diff.
    But I wanted to know if I'm going to put apps on a sd what size is recommened for the sd? I have a 4 gb at the moment. Also does this just free up memory or does it improve performance as well? Also please add any other helpful suggestions that I may not of thought 2 ask about yet

    First know what class your sd card is of. It's not recommended for sd cards less than class 4 as everything would be so slow. It does improve performance if you have many apps by freeing phone memory. The cache would still stay on the phone memory though, so you might wanna clear some apps' caches from to time. About the size, I have a 2GB card of which I partitioned 256MB for apps. To me it's more than enough (I currently have about 70 apps). If you wanna make a linux-swap don't make it any larger than 64MB; it wouldn't make anything better if larger. As to your rom, it's the best rom for apps2sd. It does everything automatically you just need to partition your sd card. It'll take a few minutes to start up the first time. Good Luck

    EDIT: forgot to mention, half my apps partition is free
