Question Way to install phone memory only apps to mass memory


I've noticed that for some apps (e.g. DivX player) i do not get the option of installing to my mass memory during the installation process.

Is there a way around this?

i dont think so. but its best to install all applications to the phone memory anyway. mass memory just causes problems IMO. phone memory exists for only 1 purpose, 3rd party applications.

Phone memory is there for Calendar data, Contacts, and by default also Messages.

I always install applications to mass memory or a memory card, and only rarely to phone memory.

If the application does not allow it, then the developer fixed the installation location when they made the installation package. You can't change it easily. Ask the developer why they force installation to phone memory, and request them to make a version that lets the user choose.


apps, install, mass, memory, phone
