Just an FYI, Amazon Appstore currently has Tapatalk available for only $0.99.

(In case any Android DDF users don't already have it...)

Whew! I just uninstalled every downloaded app from my Evo except 7 apps! Feels like a shower and getting into an AC room on a hot, sweaty summer day!
Now gonna delete a bunch of my Gmail addresses.
Anything else I can do to "clean the residue" in my phone and really optimize it?

ICS on Evo wouldn't be too large for it and too slow?
About rooting, I've never been a big fan of it but being that I'm due for an upgrade soon and anyways it doesn't look like the Evo will be getting any more upgrades maybe I can do it.. Unless I'm wrong about the upgrade not happening?
BTW, I noticed the amount of crap that Sprint forces down my throat. Although I removed tons of apps I still have all the garbage that I can't uninstall... Rooting might help my cause after all...

Rooting will definitely help, any custom 2.3 rom will be faster and have better battery life then stock. I actually have ICS on my Evo for the past few days and love it, occasional reboots and a little slowness occasionally but all in all its awesome.

4G works when you root? Do you have a lot of apps and still no prob?
Let's see if I get this straight.. ICS might slow it down due to its size but will speed it up because it's ICS regardless of processor?

No 4G. I've got too many apps... I actually use a mod to give me more space for apps :P

ICS is actually smaller then the stock Evo rom. Now that the ICS alpha builds include GPU support they offload alot of the work to the graphics chip which makes them run even better. Obviously the Evo has an aging CPU and GPU as well as less internal memory then most, but it still runs pretty well.

I am leaning towards BAHayman's suggestion now.. I imagine by rooting I will also lose EVERYTHING?

By rooting, no. By putting a custom rom on, yes.
