    Hi guys!

    I am doing my first steps on Android today... I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and I loaded it up with so many apps that I have a notification that tell me there is low space in application storage. I tried to switch apps to the SD card by the "manage application" menu. All apps on the phone show me a disabled button "Move to SD Card".

    How can I enable that button ?

    Thanks!

    if the OS cant move it then you cant but there are apps which do this job. I dont remember the names but search playstore.

    Also keep in mind moving an app to three SD card can interfere with some functions. Not always, but an example is if it has a widget associated with it, the widget support goes away. Many apps say in the description if you can't/shouldn't move to SD card.

    Welcome to AC!!

    Do you use all the apps you have installed? If you have installed so many apps that you are running low on app space, there must be some you don't really use, or, apps that have similar functions you could remove.

    I do not have one of the lastest phone... The apps I don't use that much are all pre-loaded... But there is Evernote, Box, Twitter and LinkedIn are on SD right now and I'd like to have it on the phone...

    Why do you want them on the phone. Not really any benefit. And if you are running out of app space, putting more apps on the phone is the opposite of what you wanna do. I still say there must be something you can remove.

    Can also root to remove bloatware.

    For ex... Evernote need to be on the phone for the widget to work... When I am doing USB transfert, those apps are not availlable... Bloat removal would be nice... my phone is already rooted...

    Could thoses app be removed:
    - Allshare
    - Social Hub
    - Talk
    - Latitude
    - News & Weather
    - ThinkFree Office
    - Samsung Apps

    If yes how ?

    Oh, I gotcha, it's for widgets.

    I doubt removing any of those apps would cause problems, but, you never know. Have you considered installing a custom ROM since your already rooted? Might be the easiest way to get the most space. Should be able to easily get CM on there.

    Yeah it is under consideration right now... just not sure yet what mod would fit the phone.... I also heard that some mod can remove some ability of the phone (like the camera)... Camera is mandatory for me so if CM do not make it death, I can consider it... any screenshot ?

    Screenshot of what, CM? Just look some up, lol. I am running CM on my GTAB7, but, it's in my work bag, and, I don't use it often, just to mess around with it. It's really a project I intend to mount somewhere, just haven't had time.

    With time to look at... It seems it's not compatible with my device... but it looks so awesome...

    You might have to look harder. Took me a while to find the build for my GTAB7. I'm not saying you didn't try, just saying it might take time. Unless you found sources saying you can't, that is.

    I don't want to break anything by putting something wrong in my phone since I am not yet a guru... If I look there on get.cm, I do not see my device as officially supported... When work schedule will be over I'll have more time to put on this search... I already know that CM has been put on Ace but also see a lot of bricked phone message about it...

    Neither is my GTAB7, but, I have CM9. Try googling the product number for your phone and CM. Might have better luck that way. I had to google SCH-I800 to find a ROM for my tablet. Then just look for a guide, and, you'll be fine.

    Took 2hours earlier today to search about CM. Seems that most of the available ROMs do not support camera or if it do, it cannot record videos. So I won't be able to go for it until camera and flash are fully supported.

    In the mean time, there are other options available to uninstall bloat. Just google it and you'll find some apps that will do it. I think the best way to do it probably, is to freeze them, with something like Titanium Backup, then use the phone for a while, if nothing goes wrong after a couple of days, you can remove them.

    Yeah tried out this afternoon a file explorer to get to the root, move blaot to SD and took it on my laptop in case I need it... But available space didn't move even after reboot...
    Also found out a way to increase battery life... I am testing it right now!

    Hmmm, if you moved bloatware to SD, I'm not sure why your space didn't change. Maybe bloatware doesn't figure into app space since it comes preinstalled, not really sure.

    That's exactly the case... So I found out a way to put CM on it
    CM allow me to move all my apps to SD card.

    also have a way to get "better" batt life... In fact just resetting the battery stats database... See the link below!

    It's just awesome!
