Disappearing storage space
I keep running out of storage space /available memory when I want to add a new app.
Certain apps, particularly Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr etc. just keep growing as they are used until there is no free space left. Only way to get the space back seems to be to delete the app and reinstall.
Surely there is a better way? Is there no way to tell these apps to limit themselves?
Even Evernote, the free version which does NOT keep a copy of pages on my iPad, keeps ballooning.

It appears that once these apps have grabbed storage space, there is no way they are going to let it go. Deleting and reinstalling is the only way to get your space back.
The only alternative is to use the web interface for these sites via Safari. News apps do the same thing. I had the BBC and CNN apps, but junked them for this reason. Now I access the sites only from Safari.
Just a suggestion: Check is there any application in your
device that use progressively storage space. You can do that by monitoring memory usage of applications. Example for that is this screenshot

Well -yes -that's what I mean - I've been checking all my apps to see which ones are increasing in size every day. The ones I've listed do it, and I have already dropped the Gmail app, as it was taking up as much as the iPad Mail app, and some of the news apps like Reuters and AP.

I find despite having a 16GB iPad I have less room for music than I do on my 8GB iPod!
That's the downside of having an iPad with small storage. All I can suggest is either upgrade to a higher storage iPad(32,64,128)get a cloud drive or the Airstash.
