Utilizing SD cards for the storage of apps has undoubtedly been one of the biggest feature requests of Android since the G1 was released, with users being limited to the internal storage capacity of their devices to install applications on. Fortunately, Google have finally addressed the issue, and an update may not be too far away.

A post on Issue 1151 yesterday by a Google representative confirmed that the feature was ‘coming soon’ to Android devices, although no exact information was divulged at the time. This post came shortly after the status of the issue was changed to “Future Release”

Apologies, but I'm not permitted to disclose scheduling information - suffice to say it's coming soon :) Sorry for being vague, and thank you for your continued patience - I sincerely appreciate it. Happy friday :)

Although an exact date for the update wasn’t disclosed, there’s a possibility that it could be released alongside Android 2.2 at Google IO conference later this month (May 19-20th), so keep your fingers crossed! If you can’t wait for the update to arrive, you could always root your phone, install a custom ROM, and use Apps2SD straight away!
