    Default Do apps run differently on SD card than on phone storage?

    i moved some apps to the SD card to free up some phone storage. will i notice any difference in performance with the apps running on the SD card?

    I haven't noticed a difference. This is just where the apps are stored. They still actually run in the phone's 512K RAM.

    I actually fixed a lot of my lockups coupled with odd haptic feedback by moving them back to phone. Not sure which one it was that was causing it, however. Also, if they have widgets that you use you will no longer be able to use them if you move it to SD

    Is there a way to download new apps directly to the sd card? can't figure it out. I'm not rooted.

    App2SD is a good app that will help in moving apps to SD. It has a notification upon an apps installation to let you know if you can move it, and it can scan your phone for all apps eligible for movement.
