Motorola Droid :: New Applications Automatically Stored On The Memory Card?
Nov 9, 2009
Are new applications automatically stored on the memory card? Do all photos/videos go to the memory card by default? What is the max memory this phone can handle? Can photos/videos be renamed? I haven't been able to find an menu setting to do this.
I have a galaxy portal 2.2. The internal memory was getting full so I installed a new 4gb sd card thinking it would give me more storage, this is ok for music photos etc. but seems apps are stored on phone memory, when I want to get new apps I have to remove some old ones , I've looked on market for an apps to keep apps on sd card, but can't find anything.
So, the moron at the Verizon store who was activating my replacement Droid decided to import or retrieve contact data from my broken droid / SD card....he didn't know that it handled all the contacts from the cloud. As soon as I entered my gmail login it imported all my contacts and so, now I have contacts with duplicate data and some contacts that are now just phone numbers. I tried deleting the contact data and resyncing but it appears to be grabbing this duplicate data from somewhere. All my contacts are CLEAN in gmail when viewed online. But if I look on the phone, when go to edit them each person has 1 contact with multiple google contacts merged together. The problem is, any time I go to search contacts or enter a contact in email or create a contact shortcut, all of them are appearing twice in the selection list.
I went through each contact and split the merges, essentially deleting the dupes, but they are still appearing multiple times in the search/selection lists....and when I resync the dupes come back. I don't see anything that looks like contact data/backup on the SD card and don't know if that is something that can be deleted from the phone's memory or not?
[I know I can deleted all the dupes, but my concern is that I did this already and they came back. Is this data stored anywhere else that it might be pulling it from again when I sync?]
It has be reported that Apps cannot be saved in the 8gb internal memory but in the 512mb rom. Is that a problem for anybody? Reviews from Infosyncvideos and the androidcommunity stated the problem. I dunno how big apps are but it shouldn't be a big problem.
The HTC Desire has limited memory of around 570Mb RAM and 512Mb ROM. The MicroSD card can hold up to 32Gb. So, why can't HTC allow apps be stored in MicroSD card? If HTC/Google's concerned about piracy issues, i.e. copies of apps from microSD card to another microSD card, etc. There is one way round to this problem: They could have installed some kind of unique crypto-key within the Desire's ROM, and any apps saved to the microSD card are automatically encrypted on-the-fly with this crypto-key.
When apps are accessed, it is decrypted on-the-fly, too. In other words, apps will ONLY work with THAT phone it shares the SAME crypto-key. Putting a microSD card containing apps into another Android phone will not work, thus solving the piracy issue. Therefore, a message to HTC: Please allow apps to microSD card (as much as 32Gb card) and BEAT iPhone/Nokia N900 at their game!
Is it possible to have all SMS (text messages) automatically stored to the SD card? I recently had to reflash my ROM and as such have lost all the messages I had stored - about 800 or so from my partner and a few semi-important ones from both work and my basketball coach.
I guess milestone is indeed a great device until i experience the problem of memory shortage for applications in the phone internal memory. is there any way to save the apps in the memory card instead?if not, i think i might sell this phone and get another really wish i do not have to do that.
I download a video off of Myxer. It didn't have any sound so I want to delete it. I can't find it ANYWHERE in the files folder of the memory card. And I don't know how to switch it over so I can look in the phone's memory. So my question is where are things I downloaded stored on the phone or memory card? I looked everywhere and can't find it!
I made the mistake of using the Sprint clip on protectors w/ my Moment. I now have the problem w/ the slider being out of whack (for lack of better word). I'm going to head to the nearest Sprint store, & attempt to exchange it.My question is will I have to re-download all my apps, or are they stored on the memory card?
I just installed the 2.1 update from sprint. is it possible to now install apps to my SD card rather than the internal phone memory? if so how is it possible? i installed appmonster and that seems to just backup apps.
I was using 4gb class 4 earlier , I bought 16gb class 6. At first empty ad card was working hood then when I used up a few gb and re inserted the sd card the problem began After 5-10 seconds of mounting sd it goes out and phone shows that sd is removed unexpectedly, sometimes my phone hangs in this cycle and reboots(starts again from bootanimation part) This sd works fine with other things like my Sony cybershot w-x50
I have a Droid and with it's limited internal memory and my love for cool, fun and useful apps, my memory is at it's limit. I would love to see a list of apps the can be stored on the SD card. My Droid is not rooted. If you have your favorite SD card storable app,
Cannot seem to be able to access apps stored on SD card. Pic of app does not even show up, just a generic picture (Same picture for all apps). At time, after rebooting, the apps are available as they should be. Also, I can download apps when the SD card apps are not available, but they will not install. Running UD8. Anyone have any help? Getting to be very frustrating.
I have noticed that many of my applications seem to automatically close making the phone seem "slower" when I try to reopen recently opened applications. The main applications that I have noticed closing are Handcent and the home screen (extremely annoying when the home screen needs to reload randomly). I have Advanced Task Manager (put the items i dont want closed on exclude) and noticed that when i click refresh some of the items sometimes disappear. I've tried turning off Advanced Task Manager and still have the some issue...Here are some things to know about my droid:
Rooted, Running Bugless Beast v1.0 - Running at up to 1ghz (tried lowering and didn't make a difference) Using Helix Launcher 2 (tried switched to default home screen and also no difference)
I download and installed Koush's Froyo Rom in ROM Manager. After I logged into my google account, and everything synced down, I got a message in the notification bar saying "35 applications restored"? My applications didn't get restored when I went from DroidMod 1.0, wiped everything, and then went to CyanogenMod 22.214.171.124 with a full wipe of 2.1. Is this a new feature of 2.2?
My Droid keeps freezing then automatically closes applications... especially when I'm doing something online. And if it doesn't end up closing out then there's a bad delay. I just got it and i dont have many apps. Any ideas as to why or what I can do to fix it?
The Xperia X2 has been functioning a lot better ever since the last update but there are still issues which keep croppping up. My memory card deletes stuff on it automatically, the phone cannot read it at times and there is no way I can seem to format it either. The manual is of no help and mailing their service centre is pointless as well. So anyone have any solution as to how to format the memory card on the X2,
Being new to the Android, I was wondering if there is a program out there that will close your application permanently once you're finished with it? I know Task Killer is out there, and use it quite frequently, but I'm noticing that when I get out of DroidLive, Google Maps, etc. they stay running in the back ground and the phone will start to get sluggish.
Also on Bootup the phone boots Facebook and Google Maps. Any way to disable this?
Looking at all the pros and cons from froyo got me wondering, how important is it to put the apps on the memory card? I was actually curious about saving some items in the phones internal memory, ie movies, etc.
Does all apps etc get saved by default to the phone memory or the SD card?? Also, when I plug in via the USB cable and want to transfer some videos and photos across from my old phone, are they saved to the SD card? Is there any way of checking what is saved to where?
Couple of questions regarding internal memory and the Android folders. I have over 125 apps on my phone, but I have hardly put a dent in my internal memory space. So my questions are: 1) Why is it helpful to move apps to SD if they take up such little space? 2) If I want to put *data* in internal memory (possible?), or in an Android local folder *not* on the SD card, where is the best place to put it?
It was too bad to hear about the fact that the Applications live and function within the Droid's 256MB of internal memory instead of utilizing all of the micro-SD space that the phone can have. This really hurts the Droid's ability to compete with the iPhone on things like handheld gaming since programs have to stay very small in order to not take up all your phone's space.
Games can get quite large. I had an old Palm V back in the day, and I do recall being able to eventually run applications off of the SD card. This was nice. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think there will be apps that allow Droid to run apps off of the SD card?
