Here's a news item that relates directly to me, since my phone is an HTC Desire, and for some hours now, HTC is releasing other the air the update to Froyo for all phones in official HTC ROM.

One of the main new feature of this version Froyo Android 2.2 is the ability to install applications on the card μSD. For this, the application need to be compatible with this feature. Here's how:
 First, you must declare in the manifest that the installation can be done on the external media.

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:installLocation="preferExternal"
   ... >

The different values for this option are:

  • internalOnly
  • auto
  • preferExternal

For the application being  used on earlier versions than Froyo, it requires that either the value "auto" or "preferExternal". You also must specify a minimum version of the SDK, with the following statement (for example):

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="3" />

Finally, use the version 8 SDK (which corresponds to Froyo) to compile the application.
 The application Sushi Shop, due out in coming days, has this feature.
