    My Motorola Droid is slow. Its unrooted, and running Launcher Pro (paid version). I have Froyo and Flash installed too. I did a search but can't find how to move apps to my SD card. When the Market notified me updates were available on some of my apps, it said couldn't update due to insufficient memory. Also, I have A LOT of pics on my phone. Should I be moving all of these to the SD card too, to free up more space? I am new to dealing w/ storage and app sizes...

    I'm curious as well. Moving pictures, videos, and apps to the SD card will speed the phone up??? Are there any disadvantages do moving them to the SD card?

    "System panel" will also move apps to your SD card.

    I've experienced that apps that have been moved to the SD card from the internal phone memory don't get updated automatically--strange.

    I moved several apps (not my gallery pics) to the SD card w/ the program. Not noticing a change in speed. I'm not sure if there's a connection but the phone has slowed way down since I installed the paid version of Launcher Pro. Is there a way to turn that app off w/out uninstalling it, to see if that's the issue?

    Both Titanium Backup and SystemApp Remover will uninstall instead of deleting your apps. It's your choice.

    You won't. The amount of user storage used has no impact on your device's speed. If your device is running slow then you need to look at what's using the CPU and RAM.
