Hi all

Following on from the thread in the off topic forum around the quality of the articles on Stuff, I've noticed that the Stuff App on my phone (5s) is 643Mb. I have an account with Stuff, my settings are such that I don't download and store images.

The app on my wife's phone (who doesn't have an account is only 41Mb.

Any thoughts on what could be causing the discrepancy? I've emailed the help line earlier this week but so far no response.

It's not a huge issue, I'm just curious as to why???

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

Could just be caching all the information....but that is quite high.
Have you tried to remove the app and download it again to see if the it takes up the same amount of space?

I was just doing that after my post. Interesting it has got rid of all of that data.

It does seem a lot to cache, especially given the settings and how I understood iOS dealt with RAM. I could have been wrong on that point though.

Had a look but don't have that problem here. Mind you the app design is terrible and updates are infrequent, so have defaulted to the mobile site instead mostly.
