Default Device Memory....How to see application sizes?

Please Login to Remove!

Alright folks, I've been searching but haven't been able to figure out a way to do this:

Is there a way to see the size of the individual applications loaded? I've got a new curve w/only 6,083,228 File Free. I migrated all of the media and settings from my 8700, so I suspect that's why I don't have a lot left.

I'd like to identify the largest offenders and either move them to the media card or delete them? It doesn't look like I have any language packs installed, so the first target is gone.

It looks like I can free up about 3MB of pictures by moving them...can I use the Media Manager to do it in bulk or do I have to move each one individually?

Thanks in advance!!!

Good original post. I've been wondering about this myself.

I'm also wondering how on earth Cory's last post was earlier than the original post. According to what I see, Cory's last post was at 1:36pm, but the original post was at 2:31pm. Odd.

That would be odd... but I don't see the difference.

I'm sure there is a perfectly logical explanation besides time travel or some other very strange explanation, but I show:

Another fast way to find out application size is to use the Application program in the Desktop Manager.. when you open it and it lists the aps, it shows all ap sizes at the same time.

Also, you may want to check out the great thread on this site to optimize BB's and free up memory (if you haven't already done that).
