'Lumia storage check' app allows Lumia users to store their map data on the microSD card
Most smartphones feature a decent amount of internal storage space nowadays, but that doesn't mean that it's unlimited. Quite the contrary, if you are a heavier user, chances are that you'll run out of space pretty quickly.

Most smartphones feature a decent amount of internal storage space nowadays, but that doesn't mean that it's unlimited. Quite the contrary, if you are a heavier user (as in, use your phone a lot), chances are that you'll run out of space pretty quickly. That's more of a problem for the closed systems out there like iOS and Windows Phone. iOS, for example, doesn't even support microSD cards, while many Windows Phones have microSD slots, but don't allow you to install stuff on the memory card.

This situation probably isn't going to change anytime soon, but at least Nokia Lumia users can now do something in order to free up some internal space without sacrificing any data! How? Well, Nokia has updated its 'Lumia storage check' application, which will not only allow you to clear unnecessary temporary files, but also to store your offline map data on the microSD card, instead of the internal memory. And that can be a big deal, considering the vast amounts of space those maps tend to take. Just like that, Nokia has added yet another reason why you should prefer its Windows Phone handsets over those of the competition.
