    The larger amount is what storage will be freed up when deleting the game. The documents and data storage size is included in the larger total. Here's a screenshot to illustrate it. image.jpg

    No, probably not. The actual storage freed up should be the sum of the two. The Documents and Data section includes any data the app stores on the iPad. That can be data generated by the game, like score boards, game saves, and generated content. For other apps it can include actual documents and/or databases that you create or download in the app.

    Hold in mind the Documents and Data may not free up as quickly as the the app itself. You may have to wait a bit, or restart the iPad, before the space shows it is available.
