Move Selected Apps To SD With Link2SD App

If you want to only move specific applications to SD you might be hard pressed to find an app that will do this for you. Most of you will have heard of app2sd, however at the time of writing this moves all applications to SD.

XDA forum member bakpinar didn’t want to move his launcher, soft keyboard and dialer application to SD which would make them unavailable on boot if the SD card ever had a problem or was not inserted. In order to resolve this problem, he developed Link2SD.

The Android app links to the SD card ext2 partition but differs in two ways: One, instead of linking /data/app you can select specific applications and two, Link2SD is an application which means it has a user interface. The UI enables you to manage your application and create or remove links with just one click.

Link2SD requires root access.

For more information and to download the app, head on over to the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
