Installing Apps on Media Card

Does anyone know how I can install new apps on the media card so as not to fill up the device memory? Is there a way to move existing apps to media card?

 

Thanks.

Re: Installing Apps on Media Card

You cannot do so, either question.

 

Applications are only installable to the Device Memory

Re: Installing Apps on Media Card

Thanks for the clarification. I thought that was the case, but wanted to confirm.

That really is a bummer, since the user is limited to a very limited device memory.

Even the good old Palm OS used to allow installing apps to card and that was five years ago.

Re: Installing Apps on Media Card

Palm ain't doing so well these days.

Re: Installing Apps on Media Card

Well, I guess some do not know how to sell.

 

I am just frustrated because RIM opened up the app world and I installed two of these and now have run out of memory.
