    ok this might be a stupid question but are there any benefits of moving your apps to your sd card? i know it saves room on your phone but what if you have a class 2 SD card would the apps open slower compared to apps on a class 6 SD?

    You wouldn't notice a difference speed wise most likely. There are serious disadvantages if you unmount your SD card though.

    On this phone (with 6+gb of internal memory just for apps) there is no reason to use this feature.

    This is how I see it too. I plan on installing all the apps on internal memory, and using the SD card for media like movies and music.

    That's the best way. I bought a 32gb card for my music (17gb).

    The app my company sells puts about 2gb+ worth of data and stuff on your sd card, but the app is technically installed in the internal memory.

    Apps on internel memory was nothing but FUD. Even with 256mb for apps you could still fit a couple hundred properly written apps.
