Due to frequent usage, the size of a number of applications on my iPhone have ballooned to hundreds of megabytes—Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Tweetbot, photo apps, etc—because of in-app cache data. This cached data quite often slows down an app’s performance.
As it is, iOS has no way to delete what is classified in the Usage screen as “Documents & Data,” and to remove these large data caches, one needs to remove the app. Deleting the app, of course, also removes the settings you have for an application.
I think that you should be able to delete the application cache data without having to delete the application settings, and there should be a means of isolating the application’s setting data from general cached data. App makers should be allotted a certain amount of space (perhaps a few MB) in addition to the application size for data storage—logins, settings, whatever.
P.S. A larger push for iCloud game saves would be pretty great too.
Apple rumors might be great and all*, but I’m pretty sure that “kidney doctors who quit their job to blog about Apple rumors” is not something the world needs. Going from something that tangibly helps people to furthering the culture of technological fetishism is not at all a respectable career change.
*Apple rumors are actually terrible. I’ve been uncertain for the past several months about whether I should get an iPad 4 or wait for an iPad 5 because of these dumb rumors.
