Following up on the previous “quickies” format, I decided to answer a question that goes unanswered through a quick Google search. This quickie has to do with the Android OS platform.
Question: Why can’t I move certain applications to the SD card?
Answer: The “move to SD card” feature of Android MUST be explicitly enabled by the developers of each application. This is the reason why for some apps, the “move to SD card” button is greyed out.
Hope that helps anyone who’s ever asked Google this question!
Just a couple of days ago, the good folk ‘Cyanogen’ released version 6.0 of their much acclaimed CyanogenMod. To my (and many other people’s) sadness though, it still does not support the Samsung Galaxy S nor any of its other flavours (Vibrant, Captivate, etc).
According to a previous post by the same gentleman, Vibrant support (and hopefully all the rest, by affinity) might be coming to version 6.1. Until this version is released let’s just hold onto that thought and pray they are serious about it!
In the meanwhile, maybe you’d like to give one of the Froyo builds a spin?
In case you were not aware yet, there are Froyo builds available out there RIGHT NOW for the Samsung Galaxy S. You just have to be aware that these builds are in fact beta builds released by Samsung and thus might still be a bit buggy and crash-ey. Still, it shouldn’t break your phone. If anything you’ll just have to reflash it back with Éclair which is perfectly possible and very safe.
So you want to give these Froyo builds a try? After all there are already three betas out there so it can’t be that bad, right? Well, just read on for a walk through on how to get these builds and how to get them on your phone! Continue Reading

As some of my readers may know, I have recently traded in my Maemo-wielding Nokia N900 for a brand new Samsung Galaxy S. This move was led by several reasons that I am not going to go in detail in this post now but I did it and I was very happy with my new phone. In comparison with the Nokia it was super fast and best of all, it runs Android which is, in my opinion, a great mobile operating system.
