    I have a galaxy s with 2.2 on it. I am needing to know how to access the apps that have been put on the sd card. Or how to move them back to the phone. See, my problem is the fact that I updated one of the games on my phone and it disappeared in the list of apps. I thought it got deleted till I discovered it on my sd card ( by going to settings, apps, manage apps, then on sd card) Now, I have now idea on how I can play it from there or transfer it back to the phone. Any help here would be appreciated.

    I know I have seen other post discussing how to put apps on sd card, but not how to use them from there.


    THANKS!!!!!!!!:D

    Settings | Applications | Manage Applications

    Press "On SD card" at the top.

    Select the game, press the "Move to Phone" button.

    EDIT: There should still be a link in your Applications (main screen) to be able to run it if you want to leave it on the external SD card.

    Tried that and the move button is dark and I am not able to select it. Also, it is not in my apps list. That is how come at first I thought it had been deleted from my phone.
    Thanks!!
