    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!

    :rolleyes:

    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 :eek::mad:

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