    Anyone else get the MP3 Amazon store on the Inc.? I installed it because I DJ on the weekends and like knowing if I needed to last minute I can grab a song from Amazon BUT I notice in "task killer" that it runs when I never opened it. I reboot the phone and its open, I kill the task and then like an hour later I can go back in and it's open again yet I never touched it...

    It has that reputation. I don't have it installed, personally.

    most people say these concerns are overblown. it may be running but is using almost no power or memory

    It is probably using literally zero processing power. If Android needs more RAM it will take it out of memory. So much of the upset over stuff running in the background and task killers etc is because people coming from other operating systems don't understand how Android (Linux) manages memory.

    Rumor has it it's because of the issues getting apps to recognize internal storage - I think the Inc was intended to be marketed as a "SD Card Optional" device.

    The funny thing is people laughed when i told them that it has a reputation of eating resources. I only knew that because it was taken out of a couple droid eris roms due to this fact and was noted in the information files. Ahh well, people are funny.

    I've been using this version for a while now. It works ok, sometimes it randomly hangs or force closes. I was looking around at cyrket.com and saw that there is a newer version 1.7.23. Does anyone have the apk for this verson? I tried Google with little success. The screen shots show the UK version so maybe 1.6 is the best we can do in the US. Thanks in advance.

    Here's the link:
