Save apps to SD card WP8

6 posts in this topic

On the windowscentral forum I saw someone mention that you could do this via a PC. Just wondering if anyone on here has done this, or knows if it's not possible? I always thought you could only save: photos, music, videos, and docs to the SD card in WP8.

Thanks

sorry, you can't do this, at the moment. Should've googled it first :P

Yep, hopefully in 8.1! 4gb of internal storage is not enough for apps once WP has had its way with it. Apps need to have the option of using external storage.

And now 8.1 is available (dev unlocked preview currently) apps can now be installed on the SD card :-)

 

8.1 is the best thing that has happened to WP

I think US has the proper release now, but Europe and UK are to get it in July. I am looking forward to it  :)

But, I'm a bit concerned about the Dev release cause I've read numerous stories of abnormal battery drain, after loading it.

The thing is: once you've installed the Dev version, you can't go backwards (back to 8.0)...

You can go back, I read one article explaining how to do it shortly after the dev release was launched, I do not have the link to hand unfortunately.

As for battery drain, I've not really encountered much of a problem myself, possible some of the reports may be simply down to the device being used more than normal as with anything new. Some did claim Cortana was to blame but again it's not been the case with my 925.

Yeah, I just found that out a few days ago. What I heard was, you can only rollback if you have Nokia device. You must use a pc to do it, with Nokia Software Tool installed (not sure that's the correct name though)

Regarding battery drain on WP8.1 DVP, I just read this today.

This guy claims a million people are effected. Even if he's half right, that is a lot. I didn't read every detail of the article, but it seems its an OS issue.

 

All the best,
