Apps are using too much storage on iPad and no way to delete App cache

What is this, apps are using too much data and there is no way to delete the data or the cache

Two suggestions:

- see if you can clear the app's cache using iTunes

- if not, delete the app and then reinstall it using the App Store.

I noticed the AP Mobile app doing this also. I barely ever use the app and it continues to use more and more storage. I think it is something the developer can address in an update because I used to have a similar problem with the instagram app on my iphone.

Delete and reinstall the app, but it'll just regain the cache over time, its there for a reason.

On another thread, we had members saying that no one needs more storage capacity than Apple provides!



Then Apple FINALLY releases a 128GB iPad.

In my opinion that's a great start but still not enough - especially for the prices they charge.

Tunein and iHeart Radio both do this to me although nothing like 150+ MB. And it's definitely an iOS Apps issue because if I use Tunein or iHeart on my Android devices the cache is stuck at roughly 500K and the app never grows in size.

If anyone uses the fb app--just take a look at how much space it hogs up--it went to 300mb docs and data

Have you tried turning off the iPad. Or doing a hard reset. Could force clear the caches.
