    How come certain apps retains more data than others? Facebook 350 something mb and starbucks 55mb? How can it be?? That means all this have to be uploaded to icloud if i use the ota back up?

    Yes I can see that by the numbers... I did a little test by swicthing airplane mode on and went in the fb app and i could still see my profile, my photos, etc. I then loged out and the data decreased a little to 316mb. But that data should erase itself when i log out no? What if a couple of my friends logs in on fb all their information will be kept on my phone, even if they log out?

    Haha maybe you've been looking at too many of your friends' pictures and its caching them all.

    In the backup settings you can set Facebook or any other app no to backup.

    What im saying is this is alot of data, personal data! They should at least have a clear cache option or something... Soon this thing is gonna climb to 1gb can you imagine having 10 apps that retains so much data? Less music , less movies, etc. Ridiculous!!!

    Nothing out of the ordinary... I check my timeline, status updates, comment on pictures, upload pictures, that's about it...
    Same thing with the starbucks app 55mb? I didn't save any drinks or food as favorite... Only my starbuck card and my credit card info that's it! But still uses 55mb !! I just don't get it!

    Maybe you have some uploads stuck in cache. Did you try deleting the app and reimstalling to see if it somehow clears it up?

    BTW. I agree the app size inconsistency is weird. I have a bunch of do-nothing apps that seem bloated.

    If you have it constantly backing up it should correct the app to match what it currently is without having to re-backup.
