That's pretty much it. Open Extras, select all applications you want to move, and tap the filing button. You'll be presented with a choice of storage, and your set of folders. Just pick
the store (card) you want. Same goes for the storage (soups). To select multiple icons at once, in the Extras window, tap between 2 icons, not on one. Wait a few seconds until you hear
the screeching sound. Then, move the pen over the icons you want to select. You don't need to enclose them in a circle, just move the pen over them. Don't lift the pen until you're
done. If you forgot one icon, repeat the same process. The newly selected icons will be added to the previously selected ones.
