    I have ALOT of apps that I can move to my sd card, but it takes forever to do. now I know that things like the browser cache get really big pretty fast and blah blah. My question to you guys is, is it really worth the time it takes to move all those apps every time I install a new rom when it barely makes a dent in the 6 (or 8 if you want to get technical) free gigs I have on my phone that I cant really use for anything else?

    Any Takers? Anyone wanna speculate? I tried looking it up a few times but all i could find was people that really needed Apps2sd like cliq owners, but our phones have soooo much free space that can only be used for apps so.... we could download every app in the market and still not be full, I wonder why motorola did that?

    That's the only reason. It really makes sense if you're running out of internal storage, otherwise, just keep them all in. More room for stuff in the SD card :)

    I think Apps 2 SD is great, in a way. Is it worth it? All depends on how much stuff you have. I only use it sparingly. Reason is, if you move certain apps to the SD they will not function properly anymore. Or, it may still work but it's only half working. That's the only downside I see to this app.

    I would only use it if I were running out of internal storage. At that time, I would first ask myself, "Do I use all these apps?" Then I would do some deleting or uninstalling.

    I move apps to the SD card, I don't use Apps2SD. But anything I can put on there I do put on there. But then again I have a 16 gb SD card so I have a huge amount of space on it, so it makes sense for me (I think) to store apps on the SD card.
