How it works:
Linking apps
Link2SD uses a secondary partition on your SD card and uses it as another segment of internal storage.
Link2SD moves apk, dalvik-cache (.dex), lib and internal data files into this partition, which the OS mounts on boot, and creates a symbolic link in the original location.
This retains the file structure that the system expects but with the bulk of the data moved to the SD card.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
On devices that have emulated SD card, obb and external data folders are located in the internal storage, not in the external (real) SD card.
Link2SD moves these folders to the 1st or the 2nd partition of your external SD card (depending on your selection) and with the bind option of the mount command remounts the file hierarchy at external SD card while it is still available at the original location.

What you need:
Linking apps
root permission
second partition on SD card

You should have two partitions on your SD card and both should be primary.

You need to use a non-FAT file system (ext2, ext3, ext4 or f2fs) on your 2nd partition in order to link app’s private data files. Because the FAT file system (FAT16, FAT32 or exFAT) does not support UNIX file ownership or permissions and will cause a security breakdown of app’s private files.
Link2SD does not create the second partition, you need to create it yourself.

Linking obb and external data folders of apps and games
root permission

Second partition on SD card is optional, folders can be moved to the 1st or 2nd second partition of the SD card.

Link2SD also provides native App2SD feature of Android OS. It can move any user apps to SD card (force move), with batch moving capability.

Link2SD is a free (ad supported) app, you can upgrade to Link2SD Plus to remove ads and get additional features.

Link2SD user reviews :

Perfect with Cyanogenmod 12 Finally able to use SD card space on my xperia m with cm11. Awesome! Also used after cm12.1 but i think latest update broke. Can’t create Mount scripts. Hoping for fix!

Works like charm on my phone & my tablet On my rooted tablet with KitKat 4.4.2 AND on my phone with GellyBean 4.2.2 works PERFECTLY ## A big bravo to dev who respond promptly and solve all problems ### Thanks Dev. Go on

When I’m converting an app to system app, it always say “/system : Not enough storage space”, even though I have a lot of space!!!! And on second thought, I will uninstall this app if you did not fix it. Pls really fix this. I really love this app. Thanks
