    Any way to force apps to install to SD card?

    Any way to force apps to install to sd card, opposed to internal memory?

    No, they are in the works of App2SD which will allow it, other then that and rooting there is really no way to do it.
    Resistance is futile.

    Thanks. Glad to hear this, as I was wondering what the point of such a big SD card was if the apps weren't installing to it.

    are you sure this is true? i thought that the droid has a 256mb mem for apps and the SD card is for media storage.

    No you can't install them to the SD card. There is a 256MB space for them.

    Yea - when looking at the folder of the SD card there's no apps on it.. I guess it saves to the internal memory, but I don't really understand why. Isn't that pretty limiting?

    On stock Android software all applications are installed to the 256MB of internal memory. If (and when) the Droid is rooted you will be able to install applications to your SD card so you can have MANY MANY more applications.

    The SD card on stock firmware is used for some caches and for media.
