    There is a thread asking the 64 users how much space they have left. I don't want to step on that thread, but I am curious about how much space everyone is using, whether you have a 16, 32, or 64.

    I wish I had a 64; its what I would've gotten for myself. However, my boyfriend thought he'd surprise me with a new iPad, and got a 32. Its engraved, so I can't exchange it. At any rate, I have 24 gb free on my device. I must not be using it right!!

    Books...on my Kindle or in the Amazon cloud, with the exception of one or two on the iPad
    Music...on my iPhone, or in the iTunes cloud, again with the exception of a dozen or so songs.
    Movies/TV...none.
    Photos...a handful, mostly from my iPhone stream

    Books, music, video seem to be a big space hog. (Anyone remember that band?)

    The biggest app I have on my iPad is the Ikea catalog, which is 497mb.

    When you say you're not using it right, like what? too much or too little? 8 gig can quickly be swallowed up by a few songs,books and apps.

    I have a 64 with around 20 or so left. Got about 10 books, 15 albums, zero photos, 3 films and a shed load of apps. Treat your device as a temporary holding ground. Make good use of iTunes and syncing. I personally wouldn't just use my device as a duping ground to keep all my available media.

    My iPad 32g is almost full, with just a couple of gig left. I have a lot of music on it, and load up movies when we are going on holiday to watch on the plane and they are the big memory fillers. I could take off loads of music ( I think I have about 10g on my ipad), as I have the same on my iPhone, but every time I go to take music off I just can't decide what to cull.

    Or use Goodreader to Upload all the files to the cloud. My 16 GB has about 10 GB left. I use AcePlayer to stream movies from my NAS. Also ... Most of the time I have my laptop with me as well. I have a DLNA server on it ... And about 350GB of space dedicated to media.

    I was kind of kidding...meaning, I'm not using up all my space so I must not be using it to its full capacity.

    I have the 16b version and have 10gb left. I don't store music on my IPad or movies. I stream movies from my pc.

    Also today I downloaded Dropbox to give me 2gb to back up photos and box who give 5gb free cloud storage.

    I have a 64gb with 35gb free. If I go on a trip I'll load it up with a few more movies than I have now. I currently have 90 songs, 988 photos, 55 music videos, 7 movies, and 106 apps installed. I'm not using the Cloud for anything. I like having free space so don't load mine just to load it.

    I have a 16 and currently have 10.5GB available. That is because I only use it for web surfing and certain apps. All my music and pics are on my 64GB 4s which has about 16GB left. If I could do it over again I would get the 64GB iPad and a 16GB iPhone. Oh well.

    I have roughly 24 gigs. I didn't put everything on it yet. But I'm going to next week upgrade to a 64 so I can always have the comfort of knowing I have the extra room.

    Both my iPads are 64GB and are nearly full. I'd like more storage in new models.

    My iPhone 4S has about 10GBs left out of 64GBs.

    Since I got my iPhone..I now split up what goes on what...audiobooks and music go on the phone...movies go on the iPad...photos land on both...this allows me to get the most of my 64 GB...now if I take a long trip by car...I will move some music and audiobooks to the iPad...so I can listen while the iPad displays the navigation app. The phone will tend sit on the sidelines and be used for phone functions...during the drive, that is.

    I have the 16, out of 13 useable, I still have 8, and with access to my PC and the ability to use dropbox and such apps, plus cloud storage, and using an app to watch movies on my iPad from my PC, I don't see how space will ever be a problem? I have music books and apps on mine so far
