    Hi Janez - welcome to the forum! :) Johanna has already provided you excellent guidance in looking for an app's size in the App Store.

    Some definitions may help also - I'm assuming that you are referring to storage on your device, kind of the 'solid state drive' and given in amounts of GBs (e.g. 16, 32, 64, 128 GBs); 'memory' is your RAM (random access memory) - as an example, my iPad Air 2 has 2 GB of RAM & 64 GB of storage. Please provide us w/ the model of your iPad and its storage which I suspect is likely low, such as 16 GB, from your issue(s) described above.

    Finally, you can also assess your storage by going into Settings -> General -> Storage & iCloud Usage -> Manage Storage; this should bring up a long list of your apps in the right column and the amount of storage being used (see first image); by pressing an app, further information is provided, i.e. the size of the app & also the amount of storage being used for its 'Documents & Data' (see second image looking @ my Zinio app which contains a LOT of magazines). There you can decide to reduce what may be in an app and/or delete those apps taking up the most space, if no longer needed. Dave :)

    Sites like that one support piracy by allowing free download of paid apps. Piracy in any form or discussion on how to obtain pirated content is not allowed.
