With so many apps floating around in Google Play, it can become tedious to sift through everything to find the best one for this or that. There’s definitely not a shortage of different apps that all do the same thing – how do you know which Web browser to use when there’s a million different ones with a 4-star rating?!
Whether you’re a seasoned Android user or new to the platform entirely, this list should help get you started on building a solid arsenal of apps to make your mobile life easier.
I’m pretty sure just about everyone uses something like this – especially if you have a lower-end device with an unreasonably small amount of internal storage. It’s simple: move your downloaded apps to the SD card.
App2SD is a tool to help move app to SD card to save internal storage of phone. It’s very easy to use, and when you open the app, you will find 3 tabs: “On Phone”, “On SD Card”, “On Phone Only”.
Stock apps as well as a few from Google Play are just un-moveable, but most anything you download is easily transfered to your SD card. I know there are a ton of apps that work pretty much the same - and even one with the strikingly similar name of ‘App 2 SD’. I’ve checked out a great deal of them since switching to Android, but I strongly recommend this one. App2SD is probably the cleanest looking and most straightforward of the bunch, and integrates nicely to the stock UI as well.
You can pick up App2SD from Google Play for free here.
