This is default:
#CanInstallToExternalStorage: False

There are some posts about it, but I would need an answer from people with experience:

What if I set it to true? I want my app to run on as many devices as possible. What would you suggest?

Thank you.

If the device has an SD card and the system detects low space available on the internal storage or if the user decides to move the app, it will be installed on the SD card.
This has about no incidence but for : widget (on some devices the widget won't be available) and Services set to start at boot (on other and some devices when the app is on the SD card, the services won't start at boot).
