    Hi All -

    I'm trying to sync a fairly large app and my I don't enough space.

    According to the barometer at the bottom of my iTunes screen when my iPhone is connected I have 3GB of 'Other' (orange).

    I have no idea what 'other' is supposed to represent and I don't know what I could possibly have on my iPhone that takes up 3GB of space outside of the usuals ... songs, address book, calendar, etc.

    Please help figure this out for me.

    Have you ever jailbroke your phone? Go to Settings and clear the Cache in Safari and see how much space it'll clear out on your phone.

    No, they are included either in the Audio or Video section depending on if its an Audio or Video podcast.
