    Default How many apps is too many apps

    I have LOTS AND LOTS of apps on my phone.

    For those apps installed internal:
    187mb available.

    Running Services says:
    Available: 77+155 in 34

    Is that good?

    He is talking about internal memory, the evo only has 446MB of internal memory.

    That's why I am glad I have the Incredible. 768MB of RAM. Even though I have a ton of crap on my phone that I actually use I only have 100-150MB free.

    Don't worry until you get the Low Memory Notification. Then delete what you don't use and move some apps to SD.

    Technically, it's not a problem unless you start getting the 'low memory' notification as said above, but....

    The more programs you have the more likely you'll run into some type of conflict/problem, and you'll have a harder time narrowing down what app is causing the problems... When you do have issues, it may be difficult to get answers from others because as you increase your application mix, you are decreasing the likelyhood that somebody else has the same/similar configuration and in turn, your peer resource group... Just a few thoughts...

    It's good or bad only you can answer, why? Because what you may run I may not. Now if you can't run everything you need then its bad. Just disable apps and unused services as you can manually start them.

    Also wanted to add that I have no major issues. Maybe battery, due to too many apps pushing and pulling at once. Other than that, I haven't had any system related issues due to apps.

    These were all really good points! I figured I'd ask since everytime someone looks at my app list they think its pretty large.

    If anyone is interested. I did remove all my 3 Gameloft games cause they don't install to SD and they are too big.

    It's funny that you ask this question.

    On my DInc (the wife now has it), I could never go below 520M free - it would start giving me the Low Space warning and wouldn't allow me to install anything else. I replaced it through Verizon Warranty and the 2nd one did the same thing - at 530M free. That got to the point where GMail wouldn't sync any longer. Once I went to 531M free, GMail started to sync and the warning went away.

    Rockin' a Droid X now. I have yet to hit a ceiling.

    I have 758...got it on launch so it wasn't added, unless Froyo did something that freed up?

    Last time I checked, app hoarding is still legal ;-)

    I try to keep my phone on the minimal side. I can always reinstall apps from Market or Titanium in a minute or two.

    I get the 'Low on space' warning at about +/-42MB left (roughly 89% used). And I have every app I can possibly move to the card that I possibly can (except Evernote, because the widget won't load if it's on the card).

    I've attgempted this many times and every time I do, each app is already cleared from the cache (shows 0 memory being used).

    The biggest rub in all this is that I have discovered that none of my Google accounts will sync if the 'Low on space' warning is active (even though my memory is only 89% used).
