    Clear data

    I've finally moved alot of my apps to my SD card. There is also a option called clear data. Do I want to do that? I fear losing the app or the info on that app. I've cleared cache as well.

    No do not clear data unless you don't mind losing all your settings.

    How did you move your apps to your SD card? Thanks

    Edit: nevermind i figured it out. there's a place where it says move to sd card. but how come not all apps have that option?

    Go to manage apps. After they all download, click on each one. If You can move it to SD card it will literally say move to SD card.click that button and it moves the app

    Many of the apps are capable of working from the SD card, but unless you root you can't move them. Then if you're rooted you do it with terminal emulator and the apps that don't show capable of moving become movable.

    For stock users, the only way to move apps to the SD card is to have the dev enable it. A lot of devs seem to be loath to do so, however.
