SanDisk Memory Zone (beta) for Android: Easier SD card management

SanDisk, the company famous for making memory cards (no really?) has released a really handy little app on the Android Market.

The SanDisk Memory Zone gives you a nice graphical quick look at what’s taking up space in your phone’s internal storage as well as what’s lurking on your microSD card. What’s more it allows you to jump directly to the music file, picture, video, document or app your looking at.

So you can tap on an MP3 or picture and it’ll jump you straight to the music playing app or the gallery.

Long-clicking on an app icon also brings up to the option to move a file to the phone’s memory or the memory card (where applicable) along with an option to delete the file altogether.

There’s also a backup and restore option which backs up phone memory to an SD card or a cloud service, and restore said memory from either place.

In beta at the moment, we’d like the option to be able to select multiple files (say, an entire album’s worth of songs) when moving files about, and maybe the option to rename files too (especially photos).

But otherwise, we’re really liking SanDisk Memory Zone. It’s quick, really easy to use and it has a really nice, clear design as well.

SanDisk Memory Zone is free to download from the Android Market now (2.2 Froyo and above).

Thanks to Mike for sending this in!
