black clock icon delays
I'm getting the little black watch face a lot all of a sudden, and I can't figure out which application is causing the problem. If you've struggled with this yourself, please suggest what you did to repair it.
You could be running out of memory, depending on which device you are using (assuming it is a 9630). You could try doing a battery pull, or removing some of the applications. Check in Options>Memory. I had that problem whenever I installed too many apps.
