A well written app/game will let you choose to store the app's data on the SD card. Unfortunately, most apps/games do not meet that definition of well written.

For each app that uses lots of data space (camera, GPS, maps, games...) check the app settings to see if the app lets you pick the SD card as its storage space.

Obviously, you want to have your media files (pictures, music, videos, documents) stored on the SD card.
