    What. Is the " other" category

    I'm trying to find out what's on my iPad since its now full. The summary page has a category called "other". The other categories make sense to me (video, photos , etc.).

    I want to identify what's in "other " to see if I can delete something within it to free up some space.

    Any ideas on how to do that?

    Thanx

    This is the definition I found from Apple's support forum:

    "Other" includes data such as contact information and photos assigned to contacts, calendar events, Safari bookmarks/cookies/history, notes created with the Notes application, SMS messages, email stored locally or cached, and 3rd party application data created and stored by the application.
    Current Apple Devices:

    iPad 3-Black-16G-WiFi
    iPod Touch 4th Gen-Black-8G-WiFi

    Goodness, I have over 1,000 contacts and just synced their Facebook photos with them. I didn't think about that eating up space. I am okay for now, but will have to tuck that piece of information away for future reference.
