    I don't run bb but off you go to settings/applications/manage/all select the app you want to move and if the move to sd is lit it may be moved.

    See if there's an option to turn on the ability to move all the apps to the SD card and then start moving them. There's an app on the market to do it automatically, but I don't know the name or efficiency.

    Also, don't move any widgets to the SD card, they'll stop working. Try clearing your Dalvik cache.

    Oh wow it's that easy...?

    Also almost NONE of my apps can be moved to SD Card :(

    I thought Angry Birds was more than 1 MB :(

    Weird, I'd have thought Pete would have put in the option to allow installation for every app on external storage (SD card). I know CM 6 has that option.

    Okay, I guess your next best bet would be to hit the market to see if there's an app you can find to let you do that. I always though Ti Backup let you do it too.

    It is up to the app developer to allow apps 2 sd. As mammal said there are some apps that can force the issue as well as some roms that have the feature.
    Most of angry birds is stored in the android folder on your sd card.

    Correct me if I'm wrong;

    In BB v.05 you had to clear all of your apps that were backed up in your phone's storage(including the SD card back-ups) before installing.

    I think Pete wrote .05 so those apps that were not removed, are automatically installed as part of the ROM image effectively making the ROM's image size larger than normal, using more of the phone's internal storage space.
