    Default Can you run an app from a flash drive? (OTG)

    I ordered a "male micro-USB to female USB" OTG. I'll be saving my personal media files to the flash drive, and attaching it to the OTG whenever I need them. Will I be able to save a few apps and their data to the flash drive as well (like an SD card)?

    I seriously doubt that - I don't think there's any provision in the OS for anything like that.

    you need root install buseybox

    and install LetsGoApp

    letsgoapp.net

    LetsGoApp Can

    App 2 SD or OTG
    After replace Android device, the Apps can still be run at MicroSD or OTG by LetsGoApp.
    LetsGoApp is a App, which is a kind of solution for storage shortage and backup data.
    The Apps can be run by LetsGoApp within the MicroSD or OTG on the most of Android devices .
    The Apps can copy from MicroSD or USB OTG to smart phone LetsGoApp.


    You can try it

    That's https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ng.lets.go.app rather interesting (although it would be very helpful if the English content was proofread by a fluent English speaker) but I haven't tried it yet - I'm somewhat concerned with the permissions, particularly the last one.
