    Moving Apps to SD. What Impact? (Cynogen)

    I have an original Droid and memory was becoming a MAJOR problem especially when running Launcher Pro as it was continually redrawing.

    I then rooted and installed Cyanogen (and Chevy) and things are running pretty damned good with SetCPU running a nice profile. Never had better battery life.

    I then realized I had the options of moving just about anything to the SD card but then quickly realized this wasn't necessarily a good thing. First, I figured out that anything that needs to be there for boot has to stay or that relies on the SD card being available (like Launcher Pro or anything with a widget that it needs to load). Silly that they can't get the SD card up as part of the boot.

    Anyway, I then wondered what deeper issues there might be when a friend said any app that isn't officially stated to be run on SD will no longer updated no matter what. That seems a bit odd.

    For some apps (like Droid Light) I'm not all that concerned but clearly most updates are a good thing.

    Is that true and is there anything else I should be aware of?
