    Been using my Droid (moto) for a few months now and it seems to be getting slower and slower.

    I tap on the phone, SMS app, and they feel like I have to wait forever until it opens or I can make a call.
    They open over 5 or more seconds later.

    I already looked at the memory (Data:113m free of 261m) and don't think its to low but I really don't now what low for this device is.

    Any direction?

    Thanks

    Use advanced task killer and enable autokill
    Some people will say u don't need a task killer
    But I wouldent live without one..

    Oc it to 800mhz will also make a huge difffrence
    difference.

    The SMS/MMS portion of the Droid seems to run a little slow no matter what...I have Advanced Task Manager (not Autokill though) and it works well to save battery life. From the time I hit the icon on the screen its rapid, but then opening up a txt thread takes almost 2 to 3 full seconds....I am hoping that the Update helps with this lag. Snappy is Key when texting right?:motdroidhoriz:

    What do you mean by Advanced Task Manager not Autokill?

    Are they different apps?

    Thanks

    Is there a major difference between the free version and paid other then to support the developers?
    I plan on supporting when I figure out which is better for me.

    Also a few posts up someone said something about over clocking which app offer this?

    Thanks

    I've noticed it seems slower lately as well, but I think it's the whole getting used to it thing, TBH. Now I'm overclocked to 1ghz(don't worry, it's already out of warranty after I puked on it), and it flies, it's like greased lightning.

    Can I ask what is TBH?

    I remember over clocking my Palm years ago.

    Thanks

    Hello JW....I have the paid for version of Advanced Task Manager....I am not sure if this is an AutoKill application. I would doubt it....

    I have to go in and about 4 to 7 times per day, click on the apps and tasks I DON'T want to have running....It saves a TON of battery life. Sorry, but I don't have the exact details...all I know is that it works when I use it....Otherwise, the apps to run constantly. :motdroidhoriz:

    No not everything but u cant kill anything importanat as they are not shown to you in the list. But dont kill things like a weather widget or gmail if u use those i have them set to ignore so they dont even show up on list.

    The advanced paid version had autokill the free version only allows killing when u manually do it. its nice mine autokills apps i dont use automatically every hour.

    They are different apps. Advanced Task Manager is what I use as well and it has never caused any problems. There have been quite a few people who have reported problems with Advanced Task Killer.
