    I know Myst takes a boat load of memory to download and
    play.

    I've recently downloaded a Japanese app called, "The Gift".
    It took an amazing 20 minutes to download!

    What are the apps you've stumbled upon that takes up tons
    of juice?

    Tiniwiki - Most of Wikipedia on your iPhone, over 6 GB.

    Straight out of the app store, without downloading additional content. I think sygic north America takes it at 1.7 GB

    How do you get Wikipedia? I don't find it in the App Store.

    The other app that puts most of Wikipedia on your iPhone is Encyclopedia (by Steam Heavy Industries), and it uses a lot less space. Just over 2 gigs. The drawback is it requires a lot more scrolling, Tiniwiki can jump to sections of an article.

    I tried to download this turkey but gave up after six hours on a fast cable connection, interrupted by time outs. I paused the download but when I connected the phone again it wouldn't back up for an hour. I ditched Tiniwiki, and now everything seems OK. Perhaps I'll try another download in a few months in the hope that they may clean up their act. Right now they seem to have a compatibility problem either with System 3.0 or the 3Gs iphone. :eek:

    So I'm guessing your able to access this offline as well right? Cause that's a pretty ridiculous file size.

    I found that the game Kroll can really suck the life out of your iPhone's battery. I like under an hour or so from when I've played it! :eek:

    You can access this if you're able to download it—I mean Wikipedia, of course, not the app—Has anyone here actually done this? As I said, I gave up after about six hours.

    I downloaded Tiniwiki, but didn't bother trying to download the cache when I saw it was 6 gbs (they should put that in their app description). I have Wikipedia which is just 2 gbs.

    Well, the one i have found to take up the most memory is VNC, when i view my desktop from it, it tends to take a little more than i have, gotta turn off my third monitor to get it to come up on the phone...

    Most space will be a GPS app i imagine, or that wiki thing.
