New “Androiders” face problems of “Low on space!

And when you exclude this space you start getting such error messages and sometime system doesn’t allow installing new apps due to low space. In such cases you can move some apps to SD card but it becomes cumbersome to install and then go to setting-application menu and move your app to SD card by sneaking into each and every app.
