Ability to Install Apps/Games/Maps onto MicroSD card
Games and Apps are growing in size (some hundreds of MBs). 8GB on a phone is not enough anymore and yet 8 GB phones are still around, which to me is not enough--even with an SD card slot.
Having SD support is great, but only music/pictures/videos can be installed on them currently.
I understand that installing apps/games is different, but could they still be installed onto the main storage of the phone AND have the game assets (music/voice/videos/saves, for example) stored onto the SD card instead. This would use less of the main storage for these games/apps?
Also, Nokia Maps is great, but they also take a lot of space for offline navigation. Can those maps be stored onto the SD card as well?

Well I waited since the first models for this to come, now I just ordered a Samsung S4 and wil not return before this is fixed. My HTC S4 just became the toy for my 9 year old that complaints that she cant have the gamess she wants on it, but thats just something to be sorry over isnt it ?

That would by great, I have HTC 8S too and I had to delete nearly all of apps to update my phone.. And it's shame I can have installed just few apps.
It's very important. I have HTC 8S with 1GB available for aps. It's too small.

I constantly have only 10 MB of space free on my phone which is a pain since there is a 32 GB SD card in the phone that is only using about a gig of pictures etc.... we need to be able to store apps or at least games on the SD!

This needs to be implemented immediately. Those of us that have come from Android most likely had a microsd card that was used for just this thing. No wonder you can't get Xbox games going... no one has space available on the phone to install them!!!
Also, a way to edit/preview these suggestions... or did I not find it? It's hard to see in that little box. I noticed some punctuation errors, but you get the idea. ;)
