Now if you can tell me which post to go to for instructions on how to run my apps from the sd card, I would greatly appreciate it.
To summarise other posts, you can't run apps from the SD card. It's a feature common to Honeycomb and ICS. Basically, earlier Android devices did not have much flash, so people developed ways of moving individual apps (and more importantly, their data) to a removable card. Trouble is, things can go wrong if the card is removed! Nowadays devices have more flash, the Android developers have disabled this capability in recent releases. You can, however, use the removable card for your media files, and most apps will be able to cope with this.
