Hi all, first message on the forums.
I made the mistake of buying a 16GB iPad (knew I should have gotten a 64GB!) and am finding that I am getting really tight on space. iTunes tells me that my apps are taking up 5.5GB, but when I look in the apps list and do a bit of manual calculation, they only seem to add up to about 2.5GB.
I know that I have a few magazines downloaded in Zinio and Wired, PDFs downloaded through good reader, etc., and am sure these are taking up a good amount of space. The problem is, the space being taken up by apps as reported by iTunes does not seem to factor in any documents or files that are contained within that app.
My question is: is there any way to find out how much space these files within apps are taking up so that I can target them for deletion? I know that space reporting functionality is going to be improved in iOS5, but I hope there is a solution for this now.
I've always liked in Windows how you can do a search for files and specify file size so that you can delete just the biggest files that you don't need and free up space quickly.I would love for there to be a utility that would allow me to do this on my iPad (without jailbreaking it).
Any insight on this issue would be greatly appreciated!
