How to enable the 'Move to SD Card' button in Android Applications Manager?

You must Login before you can answer or comment on any questions.

In Android, you can go to Settings >> Applications >> Manage Applications >> and then click on [Name of App] to view the app details. There is a 'Move to SD card' button which is available for some apps and grayed out (not click-able) for other apps. The app I've created and installed does not have a click-able 'Move to SD card' button.

Is there a way to enable the 'Move to SD card' button for a mobile app created for Android?

You can add the following to your tiapp.xml file:

<android >
  <manifest android:installLocation="auto">
    <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" />
One note - If you have a custom AndroidManifest.xml, you'll need to add the android:installLocation=&quot;auto&quot; to the manifest manually in your custom file.
