    What kind of phone do you have, and what version of Android are you running?

    This can be found in settings/about phone

    There is no application called app2sd, in Froyo it is part of the O/S although not all market apps are made to accommodate it quite yet

    Then it cannot be done, unless you update to Android 2.2

    Did you just recently purchase your Droid?

    If you did less than 30 days ago, take it back and get the Droid 2 (set for release this week), it packs a whopping 8gb of internal storage, a bigger processor, and an updated keyboard.

    How do you do it in Froyo? I did the manual install of 2.2, so I am running it.

    First you need to get Terminal Emulator. If you don't have it already, get it from the Market. Just pick one.

    Then using terminal emulator type in the following commands:


    su (enter)
    cd /system/bin (enter)
    sh pm setInstallLocation 2 (enter)

    Caution. This will install EVERY new update or download to the SD card. You don't want your widgets on the SD card so you'll need to send them back to the phone when you get an update (like Beautiful Widgets).

    If you want to download something new but want it installed on the phone and not the SD card, use the same commands and change the 2 to a 1.

    I know, I was just guessing that he was not rooted and that being the case Terminal Emulator would not work

    By the way, went to the Zoo yesterday, didn't see any HookBills but did see a HornBill ; )
