  • SD card installation made possible (Android 2.2 and later), although we recommend installation on internal storage if you use homescreen widgets or automatic wallpaper refresh . The reason is that homescreen widgets are not available for apps located on external storage, this is a limitation of the Android platform. Next, automatic wallpaper refresh is set to back to manual when external storage goes "offline" - for example, when you connect your Android device to your computer in USB disk mode.
