    Android Newby here,
    I've had my Nexus for 2 weeks and so far I am very pleased.
    I've been reading thru the forums and picked up several tips. (Many Thanks on that note.)
    However I have a question about Apps running and the Maps & Music application.

    First Question: RAM - Should I reboot on a regular basis?
    Here's why I'm asking.
    It started when I noticed that my home page wouldn't "slide" when I tried to go from one side to the other. It had a pause or wouldn't go at all.
    None of the other apps or displays seemed to have a problem.
    That's when I notice that on Apps Running I was using nearly 173 MB.

    Under Apps Running I have Settings, com.android.sprintmenu, Market, Google Services and Android Keyboard running.
    A reboot of the phone brought the ram usage back down to 99 MB and my home page seems to be working properly. So is a reboot a regular maintenance activity?

    Next Question: Maps and Music Applications.
    Here's why I'm asking.
    When I reboot, Maps and Music start up. And Maps seem to use quite a few resources. Are these Apps necessary? Or how can I set preferences so they don't start up on reboot?

    I apologize up front if these seem like stupid questions. The forum has been of great assistance in helping me get familiar with my new device.
