    So, I've read some different articles when suddenly I found an article from today saying that you can now store apps on SD Card? Is that true? Anyone can confirm that? I may get the 8S if it's true.

    No, I think you understood something wrong.
    You can download and store an app's installation-files on your SD-card. This means that you can download an app onto your SD-card and then plug that into your phone to install without ever having to connect directly to the online-Appstore (which might be interesting/useful for some usecases).
    However, it is still not possible to install apps to the SD-card.

    You can install apps from an SD card. See the Windows Phone site for a tad more info.

    Even in this case, the phone needs to be able to connect to the app store to verify that the app on the SD card is valid.

    Only developer unlocked phones can install apps that are not published in the Store. The Windows Phone website (link in earlier post) clearly mentions "You'll need to have the latest version of the .XAP file from the Store on your SD card before you can install it. If it isn't the latest version, it'll be listed under Incompatible apps." Which means the phone checks the Store and if it's not there, you can't install it.
