    i have some games i dont play anymore, but want to keep the saved data. alot of times thats not stored on the cloud. how can i remove the game but keep the data on PC, so that savegame data is also transferred back when i put the game back on?

    You can use a program like iExplorer to copy data from individual apps to your computer, delete the app, then restore the data.

    For example;

    Angry Birds
    /com.clickgamer.AngryBirds/Documents/highscores.lua

    Infinity Blade
    /com.chairentertainment.birthright/Documents/SwordSave.bin

    iSSH
    /com.yourcompany.iSSH/Library/Preferences/config.dat

    Speedtest
    /com.ookla.speedtest/Documents/results.sqlite

    This also helps if you want to do a Restore / Clean install but keep your saved games.
