Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Move Every App to Your SD Card With Force2SD
Our devs have come up with very innovative ways of dealing with internal storage issues in Android. The most prevalent one always involves dealing with certain apps that just sit in our devices for no apparent reason, whether it is bloatware preinstalled by carriers or manufacturers or simply apps that we install that are just too large. One solution is to move these apps to the external storage. The problem is that there are apps that cannot be moved. Thanks to XDA member arpruss, people using Froyo have just gained the ability to move all of them thanks to Force2SD. The app is freely available but must be downloaded from the thread as it is not in the market yet. Lastly, the device must be rooted for the app to work.
The app is in beta, so please give it a shot and report back if you find any bugs.
Force2SD moves apps to SD that the OS normally doesn’t allow movement of. Needs root and 2.2.
