move app or data base to sd card
« on: May 21, 2013, 04:19:45 pm »
As many phones still have limited space on "internal" storage, it would be nice if AquaMail could be moved to the SD card.

Even better and maybe easier: allow to move the data bases to the SD card

I completely support this request. With all applications moved to SD card, AquaMail becomes one of the worst eaters of the internal storage of my phone.

Attachments are already cached on the "external" memory card.

Moving the app itself won't help much -- it doesn't have *that much* graphics (as games do), and "move to sd" mostly moves resources.

As for the database -- negative, for several technical reasons (I know K9 has this, but then it has a menu item to "recover corrupted database - last resort - dangerous - don't use unless you know what you're doing"). I'd rather not have that.

What I'm seeing on my (older) devices is that apps built into the firmware (Google's and third parties, like Facebook, SoundHound, etc.) get updates that have atrociously huge sizes, like 10-20 megabytes just for the app's code itself. Sad.
