    --As many as possible?
    --Even if your SD card is a Class 2?

    Seems like it would be slower than running off the phone

    Stupid question? Do you guys favor saving things on your SD card or does it slow things down?

    Apps like keyboards, live wallpaper and widgets work best from the phone. And loading apps from the sd can be slower than if they were on the phone. All the apps I have on my home screens are saved on the phone. Any app thats not on my home screens get moved to the sd. Just the way I do it.

    We haven't had any issues running apps from the SD card on either of our Charges. You can always move them back to the phone if you notice any problems.

    go to the applications tab in settings, click on the app, if it can be moved to sd it will be highlighted, some can not be moved.

    does SDHC, SDXC Class 4, 6, 10 change anything?

    Does using a faster SD card make any difference in loading and usage speed on the Charge?
    I know SDXC is supposed to be faster
    Also, Class 6 and 10 are faster than 4.
