    Delete apk files from sd?

    Didn't see this question addressed when I searched. After installing apps from the sd card, (Mylock, etc) is it ok to delete or remove the .apk file from the sd card?

    Yes you can, as you then can uninstall from applications.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm anal about keeping everything in order, and couldn't see wasting that space if it wasn't needed.

    Good question Bob...

    So, if I understand this right, I can delete the Swype apk (for instance) and it's folder from the SD directory, now that Sywpe is installed?

    The space gain is minimal at best...I'll leave the OS do it's job....

    yes..anything you install is put into the /data/app folder on the phones memory
    you can create a backup folder on your sd card just too be safe incase you need then again later on or move them onto your cpu somewhere.

    Do you guys keep install files on your computer after you install a program you downloaded? This is the same thing. Once its installed you dont need to apk file.
