iPhone Tip of the Week
Many of you have probably run into the “not enough free space” message even though it clearly looks like you have enough space, right?
Even though an app may report that it’s small enough to squeeze into the last few gigabytes on your iPhone, every app is compressed before it’s downloaded.
This means that an app is transferred to your phone, uncompressed, and then the compressed version is discarded, requiring a little more than twice the space.
For example, iTunes reports the TomTom app as taking 1.21GB but once uncompressed. This means that you’d need at least almost 2.5GB free to install the app.
One way I know to squeeze one of those big apps into your iPhone or iPod touch is to delete some music. Music doesn’t require zipping and unzipping to get on the phone, so you can sync your music right back on your phone later.
With 3 GPS apps on my phone, my poor iPhone can’t keep up!
You call this a tip?? Deleting Music??
You suck apss,
My tip - don’t buy the TomTom app!
Sooo cool, would have never guessed for the compressed/uncompressed thingy. Well, doesnt solve the problem, but good to know! ( a girl can go very far in terms of electronic answers to mysterious problems!)
What assholes!!!...that’s not a tip!!!.....this site sucks!
Is the foul language necessary ? If you want to give constructive feedback, can you leave out the trash talk? Or just don’t read this site if you think it is that bad. Just a thought.

Yes, sometimes because the newspaper does not have enough free space and can not install the application, must first remove the other
Turdy…shut up and find yourself a life
