    it's annoying to have to click every app one by one to see how much data it's storing on the phone.

    is there an easy app that lists every app and can easily scroll down it to see how much it's storing on the phone?

    thanks much...

    thanks for the suggestions... these didn't do it for me...

    they show cache/battery use, and within "where's my droid power" i can click on each individual app to see what it's data amount stored on the phone is, but still can't find a program that'll allow me to look at a list of all apps on the phone and see how much data they're storing on rom.

    Maybe you didn't look at the right 'Quick App Manager' ;)
    The app on my phone shows me cache and data and the use of storage of the app itself.
    A screenshot on Market will show you it too.

    The app is from 'Le Cerisier Bleu'.
    You could search in Market with this name :)

    I am using Norton Mobile Utilities Beta simply because its got some other features i like, but DiskUsage is perfect for drilling down with precisions from the highend folder with most usage dowon to detail app level!

    Thanks ComeComer for suggeation! And SurlyPoker (love the screen name!) for the ditto!!!

    Because of this post, I installed yesterday and its now part of my android app catalog!

    I also used DiskUsage when I was trying to manage the space on my tiny SD card. Easy to use and very effective.

    'DiskUsage' has a nice UI but it didn't show the amount of cache which each app uses of phone storage :(

    E.g. the Phandroid app (this forum's app :)) has 5MB cache on my phone storage.
    And this 5MB 'DiskUsage' doesn't show!

    EDIT: So 'DiskUsage' doesn't show me 50MB of total cache of all apps on my phone :(

    Hey Harry('s Law)
    One of the Norton Utilities apps does what you are asking for... only thing is, its a hog in itself.. but it definitely liste each installed app, its caches file size and the means to do a 'mass cache clear' of all apps displayed in one if its screens

    1Tap Cleaner is a cache cleaner that shows this. You can even arrange apps by amount of data used.

    There are certain apps that accumulate ridiculous amounts of data (hello Facebook!), and every week I clean it out and sign back in.

    You can try App Cache Cleaner. It gives you a list of all apps with cache, sorted by size of cache, and you can delete cache of a particular app or with one click for all apps.

    I use "My Data Manager" which list how much data each app is using. (This has a widget too). I use "Quick App Cleaner" to see auto clear caches on apps.

    May I now say that when I go to that page, I see all the apps listed and right below the name is the size in mb, no clicking on anything.

    Forgive me for being defensive and negative, just trying to help.

    Here are some ideas. I don't think that portion (app manager) on my phone is part of blur (could be wrong though). So I offer two solutions:
    1. Wait, some phones take a little longer to load the data. It doesn't just get a name and pic, it has to collect other data from the app. Such as the total size the app is using. Mine usually takes 1-2 seconds longer (gasp) than loading the app launcher. The icons and names will typically appear first, then the other data.
    2. Motorola may have injected some code into the base OS as part of it's branding procedure, and anyone using another manufacture doesn't have it but has provided something else.
