    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm wondering if there is a setting to have things automatically stored on the external SD card rather than internal memory.

    Clockworkmod, rerware, and TitaniumBackup are taking a lot of space in my internal memory and I would rather have that data stored on my external sd.

    Any advice would be appreciated. :)

    I just bought this phone yesterday abs I was told that the phone does not support apps to the sd card. After finding that out, I wish I bought the 32gb phone

    1. You can set CWM & TB to use the external card. My Nandroids and Titanium backups all go directly to the external.

    2. How many apps you looking at? I've got over 200 installed and only use 3GB in total across the entire internal storage...

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not looking to move any apps to my external sd. I'm just trying to figure out how to get some of the data automatically stored on the external sd card instead of internal memory.

    I was able to figure out how to get Titanium to do this, but I'm unable to find this option for Clockworkmod.

    My CWM has two options when creating a Nandroid : internal or external.
