If you usually download loads of applications and files to your smartphone or your phone is simply getting old and doesn't have too much storage space, Link2SD is an application that you can use to release space in a simple and efficient manner. Mainly because it can analyze all the apps installed on your mobile device to see which ones, together with their data, can be moved to the SD card.
A file manager that will help you to free space on your Android
It's a very versatile file manager for Android that comes along with quite a few interesting features, including the above-mentioned. There are two versions: the one that lets you download its APK for free and the Plus, Pro or Full version, however you want to call it, which offers you all its features.
This app can move applications but it requires root permissions.
It works by creating a second partition on our SD card to where it moves all the app files creating access links from the original locations of those apps. You'll probably be surprised about how easy it is to use as you won't need any kind of tutorial to learn how to handle it.
Nevertheless, as we mentioned above, it's not the only function of this application, thanks to which we can also carry out actions such as the following:
- Detailed information about each application.
- Install applications on the SD card by default.
- Move applications in batches to the SD.
- Uninstall system applications.
- Convert application systems into user applications and vice-versa.
- Clean the application and widget cache.
- Thorough management of the phone's internal memory.
However, it's not 100% perfect: you're going to need a rooted device to gain access permissions to certain parts of your operating system.
