[Q] Using microSD for application and data external storage

I've been looking the past day, at threads for the new Tab 2 7.0 and other devices, and I'm lost. I was able to use windows to create the 2 partitions for my microsd and use Link2SD to attempt to move apps to the SD, but it still doesn't work.

I'm honestly most concerned of apps like Rdio, where the music that is saved offline is currently taking up valuable internal storage and not on my microsd.

Is this going to be possible? I am rooted, running stock ROM. Thanks!

Stock ROM does not have move2sd capability AFAIK. I think we'll have ot wait for a custom rom.

Thanks for pointing out these app, never heard of it. Unfortunately I cannot get it to work for my scenario (Rdio synced music). I can setup the directories (bind them) but then Rdio won't sync music.

I found a app that works. It's called GL to sd. I think your tab have to be rooted. This app is free on the market.
