    My Droid often sticks/hangs up or just moves slowly. I've download dozens of apps, very few of which are running. Could having too many apps slow the Droid? What's a reasonable number (probably in terms of space not actually the number of apps.,) and where can I see what all the apps are taking in the way of space?
    thanks,
    Dan

    thanks for your quick and encouraging reply, but it's discouraging in the sense that I don't know how to avoid the frequent hangups or slowdowns. Any thoughts on that? Or must I just wait and hope that the OTAs will gradually fix that? The camera is especially quirky, but often I just can't move from one screen to another.
    Thanks,

    A simple thing as 1 bad app can be the cause of the slowdowns. I would list all your apps/widgets you have on your device so people can help you troubleshoot.

    It's a wide open playing field right now as to what is causing your issue.

    edit: I'm going to move thread to general discussions area. It's a better place for this problem.

    Sit tight help is on the way : )

    Good advice above. Mine started getting laggy and experienced some force closes and it turned out to be an interference between Launcher2 and Swype. I could have Launcher2 running and Swype activated at the same time. Stopped using Launcher2 and presto, no problems.
