I'm kind of shocked right now. I've been a happy Hero owner since the day of my purchase. With all of the updates I haven't had one problem that I wasn't able to hop on here, research a little, then figure out fairly quickly. Sure, it's laggy sometimes, but all in all I can deal with it. However, yesterday my phone did an automatic update. Prior to that, my apps all worked fine. I travel a lot so I use the Sprint GPS that 2.1 provided me a pretty good bit. I live in SE Alabama, so I travel on a lot of backroads, & even when my service is spotty, the app itself always works & never gives me any problems. Apparently, until yesterday. Since yesterday afternoon (update took place yesterday morning & is the only thing I can point this too), I've had problems left and right, with apps auto closing. I've been busy as all get out, so I did d/l some new apps yesterday for the first time in a while, along with updating all of the current ones I have for the first time in a while as well. During my 3rd or 4th update, after d/l 2 new apps, all of a sudden I started getting error messages that prevented me from updating, then 3 or 4 attempts later (different apps mind you) the market automatically closed. Since that time, I've noticed a lot of different apps auto closing. Then, tonight I'm driving and using my Sprint GPS & couldn't get it to stay on long enough to even put in directions. It made me put in my user information again, which it hasn't done since the first time I used it, made me acknowledge the agreement again, the works, but would randomly close out before I got any use out of it. At the time, I had very little 3G service, but like I said before that's never been an issue before. After tiring of the process I started using the Google GPS software. This one actually let me get the address listed, but would also randomly shut down in the middle of the trip. I'd then have to go through 3 or 4 times of trying to turn the app on, without it loading and immediately closing, before it would give me 15/20 minutes of solid performance, then I'd have to repeat the process all over again. I'm wondering if this is all a coincidence, & I went over some kind of memory limit which is causing performance issues, or if this update has somehow screwed me up. How many apps is too much? Did the update to 2.1 allow us to finally load apps to our SD, & if so have most people updated from the stock SD to help increase performance? I only ask because I haven't done so because my camera is so weak (and used to be so laggy) that I never really started using it. Is there anywhere I can find a quick guide on how to properly learn apps & how much memory they are using, or how many apps running at the same time is too much? TIA guys.
