Force2SD [root]


This app needs a rooted device that supports moving apps to SD. Use at your own risk. For a free trial, download the lite version.

Save precious application storage! Force2SD lets you force many apps to move to SD card/external storage even when the system would not allow you to move them, thereby saving space in the app storage area. While Android as of version 2.2 introduced the feature that lets you move apps to SD card/external storage, it normally only allows the movement of applications explicitly marked by the developer as movable. Force2SD moves many applications not marked as movable.

You can also move applications back, and sort alphabetically or by apk size.

By default (you can turn this off) Force2SD will also scan for orphan app files on your SD card when starting. Sometimes, the system fails to delete the app file on the SD card when the app is uninstalled. If any orphan files are found, you will be asked if you want to delete them. This may help with some reboot issues.

Note 1: Applications moved to SD card / external storage will not get an on-boot signal when the device is booted up. So, do not move applications that need to perform some operations on boot. Of course, you should always be able to move these applications back if you're having problems.

As a bonus, if you don't want an application starting up on boot, you can use Force2SD to move it.

Note 2: After a reboot, it make take a while (even a couple of minutes) for the OS to show up the icons of apps that have been moved. That is normal--that's how the OS's apps-on-SD feature works.

Note 3: Some protected apps cannot move.

Note 4: The first time you start the app, it will do a slower scan of applications.

Recent changes:
- Scan for orphan files on SD card
- List unmovable apps as well (at least you can long-tap on them and uninstall them conveniently)
- Fast scroller

Amazing! It does work smoothly. I had already tried other apps in the last desperate frustrating 12hrs. I jade thought my rooting was just rotting my device till in my last try I found this. I'm really thankful.

This is a excellent tool for moving apps to as card and making space available on the internal memory.
