    Im still running 1.5
    When i go to clear cache i go to settings - manage applications - this is where my question comes in. How long does it take everyones phone to finish "computing"? Mine takes around 40 seconds to compute to see the mb or kb usage on each app. Is this normal or do i have just to much junk on my phone? I try to keep my cache cleared pretty regularly.

    It's tallying up all your stuff, it'll take some time. 40 seconds sounds about right to get everything loaded up and it still lags a bit when scrolling down. Sort by size by hitting the Menu button and start from the top. Once sizes start to get around 1MB and smaller, it's negligible.

    I downloaded an app to clean cache, its a lot quicker and easier now ... worth the $0.74 IMO. Basically the app only displays the apps that use cache, and shows the amount of cache each app is currently using. Just click on those apps, and clear the cache for them. No more guessing, and no more waiting the 40 seconds to get a list (it takes between 5 and 10 seconds).

    I tried using the QR code and I can't find it on the market. Is it off or is it ony for 1.5? I'm using 2.1 v2.

    Thanks!

    Nice find! Makes it a lot easier to clear the cache. I like that it shows the available internal space at the top as well. Much faster than waiting for the complete list.

    Thanks for the replys. The reason why i thought i had something slowing mine down is because my wife's moto droid...is almost instantaniously when you click on manage apps it takes maybe 2 seconds to see whats using what. BUT IT IS ON 2.1
