Install Manager allows you to move and remove almost every app on your device.
This app greatly extends Googles (rather poor) A2SD feature which was introduced in 2.2.
It all started as a small app called "Choose Install Location" with its ability to
choose an applications install location (internal or external memory) right before its installation.
Install Manager v3 is the latest iteration of great app management tools.
Probably the best alternative to Apps2Ext scripts. :)

Features:
* Choose where an application should be installed.
* Literally move almost every app from internal memory to your SD card and vice-versa.
* Select a number of applications and let Install Manager either move or uninstall them automatically.
* Integrated apk file browser to find all the packages you have on your SD card.
* It also integrates itself in almost every file browser, mail client etc on the Market.
* NEW: Remove system apps you don't want with ease! (Pro only)
* NEW: Disable applications (Pro only)
That's not the end, I'll continue to make it better and better. Some new cool features are on the way already. ;)

Requirements:
Android 2.2 or higher
Root access

Install Manager > All other Apps2SD:

- More power user features.
- In-app browser.
- Better performance and compatibility with Froyo.

Loving the hell out of this. This app is a few months old. No one else knew about this?

Thank you guys, I'm glad you like it. :)
It's nice, but when I go to uninstall an app, it will delete something totally different than what I clicked on :confused:

Where does this happen? Batch-Uninstall? I'll change some stuff so that it shows a summary of what apps you are about to uninstall on the confirmation dialog. This should help tracking the bug. Feel free to report all sorts of bugS! :D

For this happened on my dinc running miui gb rom...i would long press an app and the menu would show up..it would show the name of the app i wanted it uninstall but when i clicked uninstall it would remove another app...so i tried to go to app details and uninstall that way this helped me figure out that it would uninstall the app above the one you clicked

I think I know where the problem is. It's a bug in the 2-apps-restriction function. ^^ fix will be out by the end of this weekend, including the summary in the confirmation dialog.

FAT32, the app is just an "extension" to Googles A2SD implementation.

@haldir18: sadly no, it's the usual A2SD limitation. But at least you are free to move apps which are usually not allowed to be moved.

dosen't matter, works fine to my samsung galaxy 551 :p
also i transfer soundhound to sd card and the widget still works fine, isn't that wierd?

If you experience the Off-By-1-Bug, please tell me on what screen it happens ("All apps", "Batch move", etc.) and what device/ROM you are using. I'd like to investigate into this problem since I've never seen this happen.
EDIT: New version uploaded! Try it and tell me if the bug is fixed.

    Thanks to dark_polok, I've fixed the FC that appers by tapping "All apps" on some devices.

    Works well on my dell streak tab

    Sent from my Dell Streak 7 using XDA Premium App

    Thanks. How does the UI look on a 7" screen? I don't have any tablet-size device to test it on... And the emulator plainly sucks.

    ...moves apps to FAT32 or a second Ext2 partition?

    FAT32, the app is just an "extension" to Googles A2SD implementation.

    Just for reference.

    The move apps from internal to external features works just the same as when you select the option in Titanium Backup to move the apps to SD, in which you can force apps that normally only install in Internal SD to External SD

    However the nice thing of this app is that you can pre configure and set each app option, and do it during install.

    I'm one of those few people (it seems) who don't use Titanium. ^^

    One thing I want to do different to Titanium is backing up the applications.
    One of the next features I want to implement will be not (only) backing up the applications, but instead remember the place the applications were installed to.
    People could share their opinions on how to manage the phone storage and tell other people "Hey, this is how I set up my apps, want to try it? I'll send you my preset file."
    I really don't know how many people would make use of such a feature but I think it would be cool. :)
