Doesn't the app have to run on internal storage (or on the non removal USB storage)? I thought that you couldn't transfer apps to run off an external SD.

Anyway, I would have thought that people with a phone with 50MB of internal memory would be in a pretty small minority. Handling all of these weird edge cases for old devices is one of the reasons that developing for Android is a bit of a pain (let alone all the different screen sizes and resolutions).
