    When I installed the Facebook app on my 4S it was about 15MB. A week later, it has grown to 92MB! I'm sure it's caching images and what not. Is there any way to purge this cached data? At this rate, the app will be over 500MB by Christmas lol!

    Thanks!

    To delete cache,

    Settings> General> Usage> Manage Storage> Select app> Edit> Delete All

    Mine has settled in around 120MB. I'm guessing it's cached pictures.


    That'll only delete the app's data in iCloud. The path to the local data is:

    Settings > General > Usage > Select app

    There is no way to only delete the local cached data without deleting the app as well.

    That takes you to iCloud

    and if you go to
    Settings / General / Usage
    And select the app, the only button there says Delete App

    I'm sorry, I'm a bit dyslexic and I thought it said delete all, but you guys are correct (it says delete app).

    The only thing I could find is this:
    Settings / General / Reset / Erase All Content and Settings

    This will delete all media and data
    I thought it was Apps data
    so I take from your comment that it's not #
