How it works:
Linking apps
Link2SD uses a secondary partition on your SD card and uses it as another segment of internal storage.
Link2SD moves apk, dalvik-cache (.dex), lib and internal data files into this partition, which the OS mounts on boot, and creates a symbolic link in the original location.
This retains the file structure that the system expects but with the bulk of the data moved to the SD card.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
On devices that have emulated SD card, obb and external data folders are located in the internal storage, not in the external (real) SD card.
Link2SD moves these folders to the 1st or the 2nd partition of your external SD card (depending on your selection) and with the bind option of the mount command remounts the file hierarchy at external SD card while it is still available at the original location.

What you need:
Linking apps
- root permission
- second partition on SD card

You should have two partitions on your SD card and both should be primary.

You need to use a non-FAT file system (ext2, ext3, ext4 or f2fs) on your 2nd partition in order to link app's private data files. Because the FAT file system (FAT16, FAT32 or exFAT) does not support UNIX file ownership or permissions and will cause a security breakdown of app's private files.
Link2SD does not create the second partition, you need to create it yourself.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
- root permission

Second partition on SD card is optional, folders can be moved to the 1st or 2nd second partition of the SD card.

Link2SD also provides native App2SD feature of Android OS. It can move any user apps to SD card (force move), with batch moving capability.

Link2SD is a free (ad supported) app, you can upgrade to Link2SD Plus to remove ads and get additional features.

Great when it works... I tried this on a rooted stock ROM and it kept losing the apps after a reboot. It's not clear what partition type or size you should use so be prepared to scour a few forums! I finally got it working right on CM12.1 with an 8GB Ext4 partition on a 32GB UHS-1 card and it's working great! If you have major space restrictions, I highly recommend the pay-for license which will allow you to move more files to maximise your internal memory.

Great apk, could use an update though. Maybe throw in a partition tool like Apps2SD has. Include folder mount & perhaps obb along with an SD readahead init.d script or option. Nice work devs but needs an update and maybe a touch up on icon detail.
Ivan Stoychev review Ivan Stoychev
Very useful, some bugs
This app is extremely useful. I only have 2GB of internal memory which means I can only install a couple of apps (system and caches take up most of the room). With this app, I can move all my apps to a second partition on my 32 GB SD card. It's set and forget. You can even make apps system apps so they don't get installed twice (old version in system partition, new one on internal). My only complaint is that when I tried to convert a linked app to a system app, it was just uninstalled.

Worked perfectly for me on rooted KitKat Samsung Galaxy Note 8 running stock Samsung Android. I'm successfully using it with Amazon Video so I can download video to the micro SD card for offline viewing rather use the limited 16GB of the device. A tip would be to move your apps *before* you download large amounts of data to them or it will take a very long time to move an app. Another tip would be to format the second partition as ext2. I first tried ext4 and that didn't work.

Great app but be careful...
Don't be mistaken, because this is one of the best Android apps for people with cell phones with small amount of memory. It allows to move apps entirety (on paid version) to the sd card and move apps from internal no external or integrate updates into rom. Lots of good stuff right? Yes, but be careful: once in a while for some strange reason it loses everything from the external partition and it's not an sd issue because everything else from the other partition is still available...

Had to purchase the pro version to move ALL the data of an app over but worth every penny! Succeeded where apps2sd didn't. Free space back on my handset, less lag now! Love it. Partition tool on apps2sd did not work for me. Use with "AParted" to create sd card partition. Partition 1: fat32. Partition 2: ext4 (2nd partition used to link apps to the sd card) flawless. ?
Stefano Pelli review Stefano Pelli
Made my phone really useful. You can install all the applications you need and it moves the limit far away. A major reason to root. I am infinitely grateful to the developer. I also bought the paid version to exploit all the features of the app.
m.nageh review m.nageh
The app is great but there is only one problem... If i have an apk and obb file Of a game and the obb file size is more than the free internal size. How can i link the obb file to sd without even be on the cable of putting in the internal storage... If you can add link to sd option by selecting the obb file location by browsing the file and selecting it's folder. ( Custom obb folder selection) please please answer me....

Looking forward to the Marshmallow update as it is quite a job to get it working on Mm at the moment. UODATE has arrived.

Could it consider internal sdcard?
The game TWAU, has 700mb on internal sd card. I need to move that fileS to external sd card, but your app only shows it has 30mb...
Ronald Ouellette review Ronald Ouellette
Defeats restrictions for the number of apps installable on my 16GB JellyBean tablet. Interface is easy to use and comprehensive. It moves most of the app and data to the external sd leaving a pointer in the internal sd (I assume) because it gets around manufacturers' restrictions that keep strictly AppstoSD programs from working. You must be rooted and you must create an ext4 partition (10 GB or so) on your external sd. This is easy to do with a card reader for your computer and the free partitioning program "GParted". As you move apps to sd, you cannot see how much of the new ext4 partition you are using up with most Android file managers, but you can by installing "DiskInfo". LinkToSD is another well written app that makes the time and risk of rooting worth it. I have moved entire dictionaries and large games to external sd without impacting internal sd. And GooglePlay updates still work. I paid for plus just out of gratitude.

I don't think it's working
Im trying to move apps to sd card, but whenever I click "move to sd card" all it does is open up the info. Am I doing this wrong?
