    Hello, Newbie here.
    I've been searching posts on how to force apps to SD card on my android phone, but all the instructions are connecting it to a PC and then installing some SDK program. That's all fine and well, but I need to do it on a Macbook. Any suggestions? Obviously I'm not super tech savy, but I'd appreciate a little jargon-free directions.

    Thanks!!!

    Get the free app "App 2 SD"... :D

    Although, be aware that quite a few apps cannot be moved to the SDcard or they wouldn't work. E.g. Chrome, G+, GMaps, Flash player, Youtube, email apps, DropBox, etc. etc.

    This thread includes instructions for setting up adb (android debug bridge) on a mac as well as pc: http://androidforums.com/faqs/443072-adb-guide-updated-12-05-2011-a.html. It's slightly simpler on a mac as you don't have to find drivers.

    Once you have that set up it's the same as on a PC.

    Personally I put a copy of adb-mac in one of my app directories, renamed to adb, so I can just use the command "adb" from a terminal without having to cd to a specific directory first.
