so can you explain real quick?

when you install happens it installs to RAM? or a another ROM partition on the EVO ? and of course if it installs to ram then means less memory to actually run the phone to do anything right?

Angry Low on Memory space?

I got like 50mb plus and it wont let me install anymore apps unless I clear out some space. WHY??? Is 50mb to low? What is occupying that space that it wont let me use it? I cant wait till froyo. So it can let us install apps on the SD card.

I like to have my fair share of serious utilities and games. I do a good amount of serious work on my devices, so I tend to have a good amount of freeware and pay apps. I will be filling up my device with as many business apps as possible.

I could be wrong, but it may be as simple as the OS needing so much space left in order to accomplish what it needs to accomplish when it's doing it's everyday things, not sure.

Maybe someone else can chime in here that actually knows for sure.

this is why you do not need a task killer. the OS knows how much memory it needs to run the apps you already have. this is a perfect example.

now you may be able to "fool" the OS by force closing some apps that are sitting in RAM. this will increase your "bucket" of memory which may let you install an app, but remember if you do these types of things you will only cause issues down the road.. lagg, error messages, etc.(because you are fooling the OS in thinking you have given it additional memory which in fact you did.. you only force closed).

best to either uninstall an app or two you dont really use.. im sure you have one or two that gets used RARELY if at all.. ROOT and then you can move apps to SD.. or wait for 2.2....

That's the only option right now until Froyo 2.2 comes out. I would hope that HTC and Sprint see that this will become a problem that they would work on sooner than later so that we can run apps from our SD cards.

It just sucks right now because you have to micro-manage apps.

I agree, but are you really using all of those apps on a regular basis? When apps to SD comes out, im still not filling up my SD card with apps I will never use. But im with you. HTC really dropped the Ball on the internal memory for the Evo

Froyo is one part of the solution. But the app developers will have to update their app to take advantage of this functionality...its a small change though.

Actually, I'm working on building an app right now that, once you get this error, you install it - and it confirms that you're about out of space.

And don't worry - there'll be a Pro version - promise!

Yep. I'm imagining the fun of zillions of users updating tons of apps.

Maybe someone will write an app to automate it.

Uh, what? All of this is incorrect.

The ROM area where apps are installed is not related to the RAM area where apps run/cache. Task Killer will free up RAM, not ROM. You will not be able to install more apps to that area by just killing them from running.

I just counted... I have 110 apps. I didn't think it was that many though, now I see people making fun of people for having 73 apps. But my phone is still running fine so what's the problem?

The problem is you don't have enough apps.

I recommend ChaCha Droid - seriously.

And if you don't have the Rotary Dialer - it's just not even a phone.

And only an idiot would walk around unstrapped - meaning - no Tricorder.

But - don't take my advice, I'm only walking around with a paltry 105.

Surprised Finally got the 'low memory warning' on my EVO

took me 4 months to do it. what got me there was the yahoo messenger videochat add-on which takes up around 23 megs of internal memory :O had to do some pruning of my apps. When I looked at internal storage, I had about 35 megs left.

That's one of the weaknesses of Android compared with other phone OS's. Unless you root, even moving apps to SD card still keeps data on the internal memory, so you run out of room pretty quickly.

thanks broseph! fistbump! JAGERBOMBS!

Babbit, I was under the impression that the native apps2sd in froyo worked the same as the older apps2sd for rooted users...as in it only stores around half the app on the sd card. Is that not accurate?

Other android phones (incredible, etc) have a ton more internal memory than Evo but I dont know if thats just storage for sideloaded files or able to be used for system storage like apps

Did you happen to also install the latest HTC widgets that are now available? I did and noticed Dice and I believe 'coin flip' by themselves took up almost 36mb!! Uninstalled, was down to 69mb now back up over 100mb.

Why does the yahoo app require 23mb? That seems like a lot of code as most apps are under 1mb.

Angry birds takes up 12mb which is another reason I avoid it.

the yahoo app is only a few megs.

its the 'video chat addon' which is a separate apk that takes up 23 megs. its necessary in the sort of way that the TTS Speech Synthesizer is to be there so a number of apps can utilize it.

i will look into the coin flip

When rooting, what happens: do you simply have access to MORE than the allotted memory for installing apps on the stock/unrooted phone OR are you talking about RECLAIMED memory from deleting the Sprint CrAPPs like Nascar, Football, etc.??

One of the ONLY things that is a disappointment with this phone is the available memory to install apps
