    Can Samsung S2 apps run from storage?


    I just purchased a Samsung S2 tablet. I'm an app junkie and I find that my internal 3GB RAM is running on empty due to my many apps that I'm installing.

    Is there a way to deliver/run the apps to the 32GB storage memory?

    You need to ask on a Android forum. It really depends on the Android OS version, if it allows offloading of apps to run from a SD card. There are Sideload apps out there that may work.

    No it really does not. This is wrong.

    Exactly like a Windows sytem in Android RAM is not the same as the storage.

    You can choose where to store a program on your disk. You can't use disk as memory.

    There is a caveat that on some midrange/mainframe systems disk and ram are seen as a continuous space but that certainly does not exist on any PC Workstation or Android.

    This sounds like the answer to my question, but I don't understand it.

    How do I store a program (app) to my internal micro SD card (disk)?

    I'm running out of internal storage that shipped with my notebook but have installed an SD card and want to move apps there if possible.

    Thanks for your generous help anyway. I'll abandon this thread for Android questions and post them on an Android forum.

    The answer is some apps you can some you can't understand apps find each app there is then an option to move to SD card some like Firefox work fine from SD go for big apps to move to the card. A trick is often to reset back to factory then update apps after doing a lot of updates they take up more space
