Default Installing Apps...on the memory card...can you?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all!

I just downloaded my first app on the Bold, Worldmate Live. I noticed during the download, it didn't prompt me for the location of the installation, it just asked if I wanted it installed or not.

Question 1:
Can you choose the installation folder/path/location of apps? How is this done?

Question 2:
If an app is already installed, can it be moved, say from the app memory to a memory card? How is this done?

Thanks in advance.

Everything that I have read says that you cannot store an app on the media card.

The other question - I don't know.

if that's the case, then I really should be selective with what I install if I don't have a choice of where to install it?

Pretty much.

But, just install what you want and if you find yourself running out of room, delete the apps that you don't really use.
