    I'm looking for something like DaisyDisk for iOS. I need to pare down the apps or associated data since I'm bumping up against the limit of my iPhone.

    The colored bar in iTunes doesn't help. Sorting the apps by size in iTunes and then choosing which to delete helps, but it seems that some apps that aren't otherwise big may have data (like PDFs, photos, etc) stored that are taking up considerable space. I haven't been able to ascertain whether the size in iTunes is app+data or just app.

    iTunes only shows the size of the installation packages. The easiest way to see how much room an app uses (including data) is to go to Settings/General/Usage/Manage Storage on the device. It'll show you the apps sorted by memory usage.

    Great! Dunno how I missed that. Seems my camera apps are hogging pictures; that should help a bunch to purge them.

    Clearing out my old messages gave me over a gigabyte back.
