    What app is making my phone slow?

    I'm running the GB Leak Rubix blurry. and everything was PERFECT at first. I downloaded a few apps and reset my phone and it started running slow. This happened on the original leak with my phone as well. My phone runs slow at the start up for a couple minutes then everything is back to normal. Here are a list of a couple of the apps I installed at first:

    Dolphin Broser Mini
    Adfree Android
    TiKL - touch to talk
    Facebook
    Liveprofile

    Those were the first couple apps I downloaded at first that made my phone run slow. I have a feeling it's either TiKL or Adfree Android. Let me know if anyone else has experienced any similar problems this is really bugging me.

    Any task killers?

    Adfree doesn't work well with GB so that might be an issue.

    Have you experience the same problem before? Because I noticed superuser takes a while to give that one permissions. I really like that app too :/

    How often do you reboot your phone? I find that when my phone slows up a reboot is helpful. I do this every 3 days or so anyway so it's not like I think about it but if you're running your phone for several days without a reboot try it, that may help.

    I'm sorry your list doesn't give me any indication of something that might be slowing it up.

    I was having trouble with TiKL slowing down my phone. Try uninstalling it.

    Not familiar with D2 roms, but are you overclocked? If so, maybe step down a notch or two. Also, if you have any apps on SD try moving them all to internal. I had Documents to Go on internal and the license file on SD and that caused all sorts of havok.

    Best of luck

    I have Advanced Task Killer, but that was only after my phone started slowing down. I hardly use it anymore. I'm not sure If that is the problem, but I doubt it.

    I reboot my phone quite a lot actually. I usually do it maybe once a day. The problem isn't the rebooting, it's what happens to my phone after I reboot. It's really slow at start up and then gradually gets its normal speed back.

    Forgot to mention I'm not overclocked either. Don't have too many apps on SD this is a pretty clean ROM. Did a wipe before I installed.
