    Handcent loading slow?

    When i click on handcent, its black, then you can see a page of the top conversations i am having, but when you scroll down, its very JUMPY/lagging, and you have to kinda keep trying to go farther down the list until it forces it to load everything, then you can slide up and down like a champ...any way to make this not happen?

    There was a recent update - did you load that. It was also suggested in another thread to uninstall and reinstall to see if that fixed the issues...

    Abe - that would save the uninstall wouldn't it? And by clear cache you are indicating that they go into manage applications (homescreen - settings - applications) and clear cache there (especially if unrooted)? Or will HistoryEraser clear text app cache?

    The problem is i always hit the back key to get back tot he home screen, if i hit the home screen it works fine. after the first time its been loaded.

    also with a task killer every time the screen was locked/black it killed the app and had to reload it.

    TTT

    I am having this exact issue, except it only started after installing K-9 Mail. Looking at the "Running Resources," these two programs are among my top memory hogs. The issue is noticeable with as few as one thread in Handcent, and I have already tried clearing cache and reinstalling. Any other alternatives short of getting rid of K-9?

    Same thing here OP, since the Update " Better Droid X support" its been taking along time to load and its pretty laggy when scrolling.

    Hopefully an update will be coming soon
