    Install and run Apps from SDcard instead of Internal Memory

    Is there a safe way to install and run apps from my SDcard on my motorola droid? Does this slow the phone down? Is it faster to have the apps installed on the internal memory or SDcard?

    Running apps from the SD card is not supported on Android at this time. It is, supposedly in the works though. One note though, you will need a better SD card when it is supported. The SD card included with most Droids is only a class 2, generally for running apps you want class 4 or higher (the Droid itself supports up to level 6).

    Don't bother. We don't need it on DROID unless apps get a lot bigger. Having apps on SD complicates the Nandroid. When I had the G1 with apps to SD Nandroid restore alway broke some apps and I had to resinstall them and set them up again.

    Considering class is most likely speed, would going to a higher class improve functionality with, say, the gallery, or other apps that would be accessing data from the SD?
