    If you are rooted Link2SD will do the trick.

    Well what he posted looks like a Link2SD screen shot.
    The "Move to SD" doesn't work, you have to click "Create Link" to move apps and related files to the second partition on your external SD card. Have you created that second partition? If not you must do so or the linking won't work either.

    The latest version of Link2SD from Google Play works perfectly. Remember use the create link feature not move to SD.
    Here's a link on how to set it up the SDcard to use Link2SD:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1254987

    The game you installed does not seem to be that large, 25MB, unless it downloads additional data. That might be the problem. If the data is in an obb file at, I've found I have to manually move it and use GL to SD to link the obb folder.
    If it's a folder under Android/data, GL to SD can move it for you.
    If there is no additional data, then Link2SD will work moving a large portion of the game and any apps you want to the Sdcard.

    This was what I was wondering about whether it'd work or not. I have a huge 64GB MicroSD card that would be much better for use for app settings and picture storage, OOB, ect but the default seems to be to litter the (misleadingly) small internal storage. It'd be better if we could just swap them. Ideally it'd be best if we could somehow give back the internal storage to apps and use the SD card for settings and stuff like intended but without unlocking the bootloader I don't see how that would work.

    Not a hacker so I'm probably missing a bunch of something here. I just know that this will be my last LG product, I simply cannot trust their specs at face value any more and despite the ridiculous success of the LG Optimus V, they've been hellbent on locking us out of every subsequent phone since.

    Sad.

    I formatted both partitions on my SD card FAT32 like the Link2SD doc recommends for greatest compatibility.
