    On the 'Epic you could hold down the home key and see what was running and choose to stop what you wanted to. Anything similar built into EVO?

    1. Menu
    2. Settings
    3. Applications
    4. Manage applications
    5. Running

    Or you can put that app on one of your screens.

    Holding down the home key lets you see the last 8 applications you've opened.

    Or, there is an app I use that works well: Android System Info. Its free in the Market.

    if you are worried about "free" memory .. so that you phone can work faster or better....

    STOP thinking about it!
    now.. Forget about it!!!
    now.. let android take care of all that they way it was designed. It loves to have a lot of apps in the background and it will not affect the performance of your phone.

    now.. enjoy the phone!!!
