    I've seen various numbers on this on the net.
    How many can it really hold?

    Does the iPad2 tell you when disk space is getting low?

    Thanks!

    It's impossible to say because the apps, and their associated data files, vary enormously in size. Some apps are only about 1MB while others - say navigation apps with stored maps - can be over 200MB. But generally most apps are in the 1-5MB in size. It's going to be the movies and music that take up most of the space.

    Well, just go the 'Settings' and then 'About' - the amount of memory available and used is listed there; of course, the OS will take up some memory, but I've only used up about 3 GB w/ dozens of apps.

    Now I'm not placing music (which is on my iPod Touch) nor videos - these two formats will really devour your memory, esp. HD video, so keep an eye open if you plan to add a LOT of music & video - :)

    It has to be a trick question.
    Q. How many apps can a 16GB iPad hold?
    A. 16GB worth

    (Joke answer I know that there are losses for the OS and formatting)

    Some Hi Res games are close to 1Gb in size, CoPilot EU is 2Gb.
    Films can be 100s of meg.
    I have about 20Gb of apps and that's over 300 - most are small but with CoPilot and a few HiRes games it does increase the space required dramatically.
    The first I knew that I was running out of space on my 32Gb was when it said there was not enough room to synch all my photos.

    Too few for me! That's why both my iPads are 64 GB.

    When you plug into your computer iTunes you can see the space you have in use for each segment...music, TV shows, movies, books, podcast, apps, photos, misc and unused. If you are a big game player just rotate them. If keeping score is important to you I think you have to keep that game on the Pad in order to keep it's score.

    depends on the size of the apps plus music stored and any other file you have.
