Default Is it safe to move apps to SD?

Hi,

I have a 32G SD card in my TS and was wondering if it is safe to use an app like this:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....gphone.app2sd

To move apps to the SD card to free up some space?

Any downsides to doing this?

Also, is the above app the right choice or is there a better app?


Thanks,

D.

I've used the Rom Toolkit from Casual Operative for it and so far the only problem I've had is I needed to move my preferred keyboard back to the phone for it to stay selected as the default, and Enhanced Email back for it to remember my work email account (at least, I think that's the culprit...I just moved that back over just now). The other caveats I know of are you can't move over apps that supply widgets you're using or apps that are system apps, and if you reflash while you have apps on the SD they end up still there but without the phone knowing about them (wasted space).
