Exclamation Way to backup applications to sd card easy way

I just did this as a reply to another topic. An easy way to backup and run applications from your SD CARD is to go to the Android Market and download App Manager. It is free and what it does is backup all the applications that you have on your phone to your SD Card and also it allows the option to run all the applications directly from the SD Card. I just did it and it worked. Try it out and comment on how it works.

This works without creating an ext2 partition? Have you actually deleted the app from your on-board memory, leaving only the copy found on your SD card?

I'm skeptical to say the least.

It doesnt let you run apps from the SD Card, It will let you back up and install apps from the Card.

And you are right to be. It doesn't do that, it merely creates a backup on the SD card. The author never claimed that it would do any other thing.

Astro does this. Just open it up, hit menu, then app manager.

Default I wasn't too clear

In response to the replies, yes I was a bit wrong. However this does help in certain occasions such as if one downloads an application and wants to back it up and/or share it with another person. In my case, I wanted to find a way to be able to share MP4 Youtube downloader with my friends as it had been removed from the market. But I am thankful for all the criticism as it is better to right than partiallly right. Sorry for misleading anyone.
