 Dear Developpers,

I created a 'Hello-World'-application on my PC and saw that the AVD is
very slow.
When I type text in the simulation, it takes several seconds until the
text appears in the
text field. Also mouse interactions are very slow.
Possibly my PC is too slow. it's a single core AMD with 1.6 GHz

Are the simulations on your PCs running reasonably fast ?
I just want to make sure it's my PC.

 I am using a very slow old Gateway single core with almost no RAM and
it still responds reasonably. I have slow boot up times for the
emulator, but it runs fine once started. I am developing using eclipse
on ubuntu, that may be part of the difference.

 Make sure that you have not too much running on your system. It is not
necessarily the speed of your processor but the memory of your

-- don't use firefox
-- Eclipse might slow down y system (close it ... may be it helps)
-- run emulator via command line
-- if you run on Windows use the task manager to find out what else is
using a lot of memory

 Thanks for the hints.
I work on Windows XP. It's better as long as I don't use the phone as
an internet browser.
I think I can work so far and focus on the internet problem later.

1. Application upgrade permissions UI

When you upgrade an app, it shows you the same permissions screen that
you saw when you installed the app, assuming no permissions had
changed.  Therein lies the problem.  When an app has a large set of
permissions, it is hard to know if the permissions after the upgrade
are the same as during the installation.

I think it would be helpful to show a diff, or highlight any changes,
or something...to help the user know if the permissions had changed
since the initial install (or just the last upgrade).


2. my G1 Dev Phone has a serious "Low on Space" problem.

My phone is displaying the following message if I try to move an icon on 
the background to a new location.

The process android .process.
acore has stopped
unexpectedly.  Please try again.
Force close"

In AK Notepad I get the following error if I tap "Add Note" from its menu.

The application AK Notepad
(process com.akproduction.
notepad) has stopped
unexpectedly.  Please try again.
Force close"

I am sure I could describe other errors if I tried to run other apps.

A couple of days ago I got a "Low on space - Phone storage space is 
getting low.  12.31 PM"  notification.

I have removed a number of applications since then and the notification is 
still there.

I will greatly appreciate any help you can offer .
