    You have to root your phone and be running a rom that allows this function via app2sd. At the present time, Google doesn't allow it via a stock image.

    He prob doesn't, but he shouldn't have to constantly eyeball his memory stats. Plus its a pain to memorize all that crap on the off chance you want to use it one time randomly

    Not an application. You will have to root your phone, flash a custom ROM. Bit more complicated than just installing an app.

    I don't see it happening. There was discussion of it bit it had to do with the system not having the ability (at the time ) to check the signatures or verify them, I forget which, when running apps from SD.

    Before you decide to root over somerhing like this, I would do a LOT of research. Start in the all things root section, that's a good n00bs section. You'll figure out quick if its something you really want to do.

    The great new HyperDevbox games store the absolute majority of their bulk on the sd card, and it works superb, so I imagine in the near future a lot more high end games and apps will start doing the same..

    saving the data of the game(stats, settings etc) on the card is different from saving the app. again, the reason this hasn't been done is for authentication/security reasons(at least according to google)

    Well that may well be the case, I don't know too much about that, but I do really like the fact that ExZeus is about 58 meg, and about 57 meg of it is stored on sd card. ;)

    yeah. the 1 meg that isn't the verification data stored to the dalvik cache. root access allows you to move this.
