Does anyone know why the Spotify app takes up space? Looking through the usage in settings, it's taking up about 600mb of documents and data. It just keeps going up every time I use it. All notifications are turned off. Only thing that is on is the recommend artist.

I imagine it uses more space as you listen to more artists as it probably caches that song.

Even more so if you use offline mode.

Since I'm a free member, I can't use offline mode.

I did some searching around the net and found that the app ifunbox can delete the cache from the app. Also searching around, people say to delete the app and then reinstall but that will delete all your thumbs up songs. Used the ifunbox method and cleared all the cache and got my space back without deleting any of my thumbs up songs.
