    I've installed a few apps on my iphone 3g and anytime I install an app the disk space usage under "Other" bloats by about 15 times the size the of app as advertised in the app store. Does that mean the ones shown in the app store are not the actual space that app takes when u install?

    I can sum up the sizes of the all the apps I've installed and it shouldn't add up to 20mb, but I already have 400mb under "Other". I thought apple doesn't do bloatware......:confused:

    i mean does the iphone software bloat anytime you install a new app? I had about 160Mb of other the first time I activated the phone, installed two apps that are less than 5mb in total, and Other bloated to 200mb. How about that?

    No..... but even though the app size is less than 5mb there is alot more data that it puts on the iPhone ( I Believe) Settings and other stuff etc....
