I have a rooted device, and I was wondering:

Is Link2SD app safe to allow root access to? Is it a scam or anything?

Does it work as is says it does and does it actually save the stuff to the SD card?

And can it break or damage my device or apps in any way?

    Like what @Izzy said, can't guarantee anything, but with 10m downloads and 1/4 m reviews with an avg rating for 4.3 in the playstore. I am pretty sure its safe. Edit: As far as, how does it work and whatnot. Take a look at their faq. link2sd.info/faq or the Wiki link Izzy provided. – jer3my Jul 26 '15 at 19:58
  • Noting related to root is completely safe (tampering may brick your device) , but, like the fine men above me said , it is deemed reliable and safe – Dan Brown Jul 26 '15 at 23:35
  • That safe part you asked would only invite opinions here since when it comes to testing the code only the source code investigation would lead you to final answer. If you've the complete code, start investigating it, or look for somebody who already did that. – Firelord Jul 27 '15 at 11:18
  • But does it actually move the apps to the SD card like it says? And if I install an OTA update will my apps still work as I will lose root? – G12350 Jul 31 '15 at 12:25
