Is there an App to tell what I can transfer to the SD Card?
Is there an App that will let me know which of the installed Apps can be transfered to the SD Card instead of having to go through every App I have?
Also, in general, what is the minimum amount of internal phone storage should you have free so as not to have any problems with your phone or does it not matter?

app2sd scans your installed apps and identifies which have the move to SD ability.
Note that the move to SD does not necessarily move the entire app to the SD, it may just move some of it, or just the data, etc.
From my own experience on the Nexus one, anything below about 22Mbytes seems to run into problems
Also note, that when your card is mounted over USB, all apps that have been moved to the SDcard will not be available., also, you need to be more careful to mount, disconnect and unmount the card if you have apps on there because some apps don't work very well if you suddnly cut the SDcard out of the phone when you mount it.

I no longer mount my device as an external drive. There are a number of applications that allow you to move files around via the home nutwork or Bluetooth.EVO & an Acer A500 tablet.

Thanks for the information. I started moving apps slowly to the SD card and found that while you can move them, some do not like to be moved. I found that Jorte would no longer load the widget when the app was on the SD card.
As to mounting the SD card, I do not plan on running anything on the phone when it is hooked up to the computer. I always make sure to use the "Safely Remove Hardware" in Windows or the "Unmount" command in Ubuntu. If I run into a problem I will most likely just restart the phone.
