    Hi

    Most apps get bigger when you install them because the file size on playstore is the package size before installation. You probably need more than 65mb. EgMaps is less than 8mb on playstore but is 53mb when installed!

    If you are on v4 android you can't install apps to sd (some can be on the very latest version) unless you root the phone. On earlier versions it depends if the developer supported the feature.

    Hi

    I have not used a samsung phone on gingerbread. But:

    To move an app to sd you first have to install it on the phone, so you need to move other apps to sd to make space for your game before moving it to sd. On htc phones you do this by

    Menu button
    Settings
    Sd & phone storage
    Make more space
    Press next to clear caches
    Select move apps to sd
    Choose which apps and press next.

    It is probably different on Samsung but the same idea.

    Thanks, but isn't any option to make the apps to be saved from the first time on the SD Card? I don't have enough space in the Internal Memory ...

    Hi

    I am not aware of any way to download from playstore directly to SDcard. The android installer always installs to internal storage afaik.
