Force2SD lite [root]

Force2SD lite [root]


This app needs a rooted device. Use at your own risk.

The lite version only lets you move five applications to SD.

Save precious application storage! Force2SD lets you force most 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. (Not yet working on Lollipop.) 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. (This feature will continue to work even if you do not upgrade to the full version.)

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: Please email the developer before leaving negative feedback if it doesn't work--it may be possible to fix things.

Recent changes:
1.30: Bug fixes; disable orphan scan for Lollipop
1.25: Add orphan apk scan
1.20: Use new method for moving applications (press menu key to get option to switch back to old method)
1.11: Show unmovable applications, so at least the long-tap uninstall will work
1.08.1: Uploaded lite version which now supports moving five applications, and does not count unsuccessful moves.
