    I was in usage and it showed like 300MBs. so i deleted app and reinstalled and now shows 21.9 MBs. any idea why it has so much data stored? it it just the playlists?

    Spotify Uses Local Storage as a Cache so essentially it's downloading the song to your phone but you still need internet, Spotify on my iPHone uses 1.2 GB and a lot of people asked spotify to remove the Cache or limit it, and no response

    Yes deleting works but all the songs you thumb if you listen to the radio feature will reset and the space will grow back in no time. I too have space so thank God
