Can I install APP on an external solid state drive to gain processing speed?  Or would the USB connection to the computer be a bottleneck?  Does APP have to be installed on the same drive as the computer OS?  Thanks!

I don’t know about installing APP on an external SSD but I have used a directory on an external SSD as working directory on a Mac and that is really fast.

I wouldn’t use APP itself on an external drive, but using that as a working directory is fine. Do be careful to use fast and stable connections to it.
