    iPad vs iPhone capacity

    I am s new iPad owner and a little concerned about how much storage capacity I seem to be using with very little stored so far.

    On my 16 GB iPhone I have 4 songs 22 videos ( not movies but short clips taken with iPhone). 523 photos, 149 apps. Of the 13.8 GB I still 7.7GB left. That seems like excellent use of space.

    But I am concerned about the use of space on the New iPad. I have a 32GB version which has 28.0 GB usable with 25.5 BG available. And all I have stored so far is 32 photos and 37 apps. Afraid by time I get 500 - 1000 photos on the iPad it will be full?

    Anyone know how many MB the average New iPad photo takes up?

    Anyone got info on how many photos apps they have on the 32GB version on New iPad?

    iPad apps usually take up more storage but for your question about the photos I have no idea

    You can also use iCloud or Dropbox or any other file storage service to store your photos remotely to save space.

    I do use iCloud. But thought that only acted as a Backup for photos??

    How do I use iCloud to store photos remotely and still be able to view on iPad or iPhone.

    Perhaps I am not understanding what you are wanting to do, but you would just download the photos you wished to view from iCloud to your iPad.

    You can store photos online and look, on Dropbox and such, unless you want the photos on your iPad.

    I switched from iPhone 4 to 4S so I could have 64GB on phone, too, woot.

    Under the iCloud settings do you have Photo Stream turned on? If this is not setup like this on your iPad then it will not save your photos to iCloud.

    Have you looked on iTunes as to how much space your photos are taking vs your apps when you sync?
    I have about 600 photos on my iPad and they take up about 2gb of space. I have the same number on my iPhone and they take up 1gb of space. iTunes resizes/shrinks the photos when syncing. Perhaps iTunes doesn't resize as much on the larger iPad than on the iPhone?

    I don't know anything about using the iCloud to view photos, so no advice there.

    Not sure if this is correct observation yet, but it appears apps are probably ( on the average) taking up more space than photos.

    Looks like average photo is 1 to 3 GB????
