Re: Install Apps in SD Card

Whether this will void my warranty. Is it approved by Sony?

Re: Install Apps in SD Card

I have recently bought xperia L & was searching for ways to move apps to sd card, which i couldn't find fullproof to my satisfaction. My friend had bought  a similar smartphone running on same OS @ half the price & I was shocked to know that he had the option of doing so.The phone had an option to direcly move the apps to sd ( irrelevant of whether the app developers provide the options or not ) without any issues. That phone has only 1 GB app memory available but was able to download games & apps of over 3 GB directly on sd card. I am feeling really stupid that a reputed brand like sony is not able to provide such an option, though it runs on the same OS. And to let SONY know the brand of that 9000 Rs phone to provide such an awesome option ,here it is, XOLO .Really Dissapointed with SONY !!! Please learn from xolo & provide that option on your next update, if u are capable enough.

Option to set 'Preferred install location" for new apps

Hello !!

I have recently discovered from one of my colleagues that the latest launch "Sony xperia C " has an option to install Apps 'Directly' to SD Card by selecting 'Preferred install location' for new apps as SD Card.

To my surprise, this option was suggested by me in the Xperia L FB page about 2 months ago when none of the xperia devices have that basic option which was available in almost all smartphones.

Now, when Sony has that option atlast; I wanted to know when that option will be available in Xperia L ??

Will it be available in the next update??

Re: Install Apps in SD Card

En mi XPERIA M no se pueden instalar aplicaciones en la tarjeta SD.


Por favor, actualicen urgente el software del XPERIA M para corregir esta terrible falla. 


Todas las aplicaciones deberían poder instalarse en la SD externa como en la mayorías de los equipos de menor categoría.
