Move data to microSD for Google Maps and Skype by Link2SD


I have some android phone but all of phone has only below 500MB internal memory. Nowadays, I am using Xperia Play and I really like the phone because it is not touch screen and available to play Playstation one game and Super Nintendo and Family computer game with Controller. It is not touch screen so It can enjoy game such a super mario or Gran Turismo. Good for play action game.

But the phone performance is getting bad after installed several softwares. I installed Papago, Ndrive, Viber, Whatsapp, Line, Dropbox, Document to go, Shazam, then it is already over 70% of internal memory gone. But Link2SD gave us the solution. The application succeed to move applications to microSD card. I succeed Firefox(20.34MB), Google Japanese IME(13.95MB), Junos Pulse(3.04MB), Line(17.36MB), Document to go(10.64MB), Lookout(6.11MB), Maybank2u(2.85MB), Ndrive11(16.20MB), PapagoX5(3.10MB), Shazam(12MB), Skype(21.68MB), Kakao Talk(8.93MB), Google Maps(12.1MB). Now my Xperia Play has 105MB left even many application installed.
