Action Item!! Petition to Increase Apps Partition

Post by thiazzi »

If you're anything like me, you're frustrated with having only 300MB of an 8GB drive available to install applications. Sure, custom firmware is a potential solution, but should we really have to void our warranties for basic, no-brainer functionality? I say no! Sign this petition, and once we have a demonstrated body of people interested, we can all make Archos aware of it.

Thanks, friends.

Signed! I hope Archos gets the point. 300MB is really not enough, and I don't want to void my warranty just to have more space.

Signed. Its great that you startd this. Maybe another one for something like hiding soft menus with the power button option like the screen shot option. If I had a computer I would work on it but just have this here archos 70.

It is ridiculous to be getting constant low space warnings with 16gb internal space

I don't support this petition and think the devs should rather spend their time with something more important. I only install the applications I need and uninstall everything I don't need. If one really needs more space he can use Uruk.

Each user has their own list of priorities.
Personally, I support the petition.
I didn't sign it because I don't want my name associated with my email and zip code, on some web page I never heard of before.

I am constantly out of memory for app storage. Even using apps2sd.

Imagine the ram usage implication of being able to install and run 3-4 times the current number of apps !!

Yeah, more ram (or larger swap space).
That's another issue that should be addressed.

can't do anything about the RAM in gen8s, but the A43 and above have plenty of builtin FLASH to support a larger app storage partition, given that you can also add uSD storage...

Exactly zero! While I wish the Archos had more RAM it is not for the misguided reasons of those who don't understand Android. Having 10 apps, 100 or 1000 makes no difference to memory management. When switching apps if too much memory is being used it automatically tells switched apps to intelligently close and free memory. You desktop OS doesn't do that.

Now all one has to do is switch from Pulse to Dolphin and back to see the problem. Everything reloads. Reloading is much slower than restoring. Overall load times aren't bad, the frequency during app switching is.

I'm not signing, just registering my wish here. Looking at new competitors finally doing it right like Asus using an IPS screen and Gorilla glass along with 1 GB RAM all on Honeycomb for just $50 more than the A101 with the same 16 GB memory it is clear that unless Archos cuts a few less corners on gen 9 it's bad news. I'm going to hope they seduce me again.

I support the idea and signed the petition, but regret doing so--spam started showing up in my inbox right away. Use a fake or throwaway email address if you want to sign.
