Thumbs up Moving Apps to SD Card (Froyo 2.2, Gingerbread 2.3.3)

Home – Setting – Applications – Manage applications

Under All:

Select each ‘App’

Click ‘Move to SD Card’

Note: Some main utilities programs won’t move as they need internal installation

p.s. Always check that you new add has moved to SD card as even if you have selected automated install to SD Card not all program apps will abide.

I have an SGS & if I go Settings- Applications-Manage Applications & tap on one of my programs it tells me it is "Installed on device " The only option I have is to " Move to USB Storage" Is this "USB storage" actually my sd card ? I am running 2.3.3 Gingerbread .
