Link2SD is used to transfer apps from the internal memory to external one. To cut costs, in some phones the memory is not big and thus the amount which the user may get to install apps is really small. To fix this problem, you can use this application, to transfer your installed applications from the internal memory to external ones, so you will get more free space. Although, it is recommended that you don’t move some specific apps such as widgets.

The application interface is smooth and simple, just choose the app you want to move and then you’ll see what options you have. Another option is the ability to freeze and unfreeze applications that you’re not using that much.

The app lets you hibernate selected applications; the apps go into hibernate mode and their icon remains in the launcher and when needed they are going to come back from hibernate mode which the user may run them. This function is different than freezing, because by freezing the apps will be completely shut down but in this mode they are just disabled and will remain in standby to be used whenever the user wants.
