    Quick question. Is there any reason not to move all apps to the sd card when that option is available? Do certain apps work better when they are not moved to the card? Thanks in advance for the help.

    1. Its slower to access than internal storage
    2. Some App widgets wont work correctly if theyre on the SD card.

    3. Don't move anything needed at startup (SD card isn't immediately available) or while the SD card is mounted to SD.

    4. Keyboards. Like swype, swift key, etc. I also keep my homescreen apps on the phone (internal). For reason #1.

    Swyped from Droid Forums App

    I notice that when there's software updates to apps I have on the sd card, it almost always never upgrades and gives me a error -18 message. So I move the app back to the phone and upgrade then move it back to the sd card.
