    i have a couple ? about apps2sd .
    1. should we wait until the internal memory is full and then put our apps on our sd?
    2.or should we put all of our apps on our sd and if so is there a guide or any suggestions to moving all previously loaded apps to sd?

    Once you enable A2SD any future installs will automatically be put on /sd-ext. You can move apps using Menu-Settings-Manage Applications, then the "move" button after short-pressing on an app.

    I have all my apps on /sd-ext and really like it, makes flashing new ROMs so much easier.

    App data will remain located at /data/data

    Important thing to note with apps2sd:

    apps will load SLOWER when it has to pull them off the SD card. To speed up the load times, people sometimes replace the microSD card with a class 6 or faster. If after installing apps2sd you notice things going a lot slower, pay attention to which apps are in local memory and which are on the SD. I would suggest putting things like games and large single-purpose apps (google earth, google sky map, etc) on the SD card, and keep the often-accessed apps (email, chat, browser) local.
