    On my droid is there a place to see what apps are running? Like on a BB(don't beat me!!) if you hold down the menu it will tell you what is open.
    Or does it not really matter on these phones? I know on the original Storm it suffered from major app memory drain.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    hold the home key for a few seconds to see recent run apps

    essentially though, all your apps are running all the time in one state or another.

    Gotcha. So no need to keep checking memory space all the time?

    no, i went from a storm to a eris to the dx. dont worry about the memory.

    unless your loading like 300 apps on it, then worry.

    I'm closing in on 200 apps, and I'm still not worried! Still have free internal storage space, app storage doesn't affect system RAM, and have plenty of free space on the 16GB MicroSD card if I need it. All good it is!
