    Apps to my SD card?

    I've had my N1 for a couple of months now, and I love it.

    My only complaint is the internal memory... What were they thinking?

    I have a 16GB mem card installed, but with the limited apps that actually can be stored on the SD, I'm constantly getting the low mem warning.

    Does anyone have a good solution to getting apps onto the SD without messing anything up?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    I assume that you have something like apps2sd that will scan and tell you if any other apps can be moved?

    Failing that you are best rooting the phone so that you can move what you want

    With Cyanogenmod you also get about an extra 20MB of free internal space. Honestly, I don't know how they do it.

    A really good way to save done internal memory if to move the dalvik-cache into the cache folder. If your phone is rooted, then this should be an option in spare parts. I did this yesterday and it saved me about 70 mb.

    Also my concerning. My internal space was used up by apps. As I heard, Android 2.2 could install the apps from SD. Does that mean, first I unistall all the apps, then move the apk file to SD, an finally re-install the app? I don't have root privilege. Many thanks!

    It's not that complicated. You just go to the Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> [Choose the application that you want to move] -> Select "Move to SD card"
