Samsung Galaxy Ace - Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp
Well I got me a Samsung Galaxy Ace for my birthday. I was running a Blackberry Curve before which handled Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter reasonably well.
Not so with my Galaxy Ace. It has a phone memory of about 200Mb and although I have a 2Gb SD card in it too, I can't get any of the aforementioned apps to move over to it.
I've installed SDK Manager and "hacked" the phone and tried to move them to the SD card but they say there's not enough memory. I've uninstalled them and set the default install location to the SD card but get a message saying they can't be installed to this media.
Has anyone got these three apps working well on a Galaxy Ace? At the moment I'm getting daily messages saying my internal storage is almost full and then I have to clear the data on Facebook and Twitter (about 10Mb) to free up enough space to carry on. Which is frustrating to say the least!!

get it rooted and look for System Cleaner from xda developers - allowed me to move some of the apps to the SD Card (Eg Facebook)
Has a few other features such as being able to clear the davlik cache and uninstall / freeze apps

I have a Galaxy Ace too and find it very frustrating with respect to the lack of memory to even just update some of the basic apps let alone installing others. It's so slow too when I compare it with newer phones live the Galaxy S2, etc.
I am now looking to get one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/STAR-N9770-S...I3T6FMLT1EV4ZF

Yeah I've done a bit of searching online too and the recommendation to root the phone is coming up again and again. Where would I stand on the phone warranty if I did this though?

Good to hear that Facebook will move over eventually though ... I've just got to do some thinking now as everything I read on rooting makes it sound like a serious step to take.

Cant recall where I got it from (try: [Tutorial]How To Root and Unroot Samsung Galaxy Ace official Gingerbread 2.3 updgrade - xda-developers ) but I got a Root zip that also contained an UNROOT.ZIP with it in case of warranty issues.

That sounds useful, I'll check that link out and look for an UNROOT option there or wherever I end up getting the info from.

They have both the ROOT.ZIP and UNROOT.ZIP and I think that's where I got mine from.

That sounds just the thing then. I will probably spend all week thinking about this and building up to doing this now and then finally sort it at the weekend when I have a bit more time. Being back at work is such a pain!
