Pinterest app takes up so much storage on ipad

Weird because it does not use the same amount of storage on my iphone. I wonder if it is because I do more pinning in my i pad 2.

I think I am going to delete the app to free up the 6 gb it is using since I only have 16 gb total to use for storage. I guess I will just do pinterest through safari or puffin browsers. Pinterest is so addicting.

Mine is using 7GB of my iPad. I had no idea that it actually saved anything to the app itself. I hate that, too.

I'm only using 1.2 GB for Pinterest - I was concerned when I read your post - I had no idea that the "pins" were stored on the iPad itself!

Thankfully I can still go pin crazy on mine!

Wow, I had no idea! I've just been going on through Safari, and almost got the app the other day. I'm glad I didn't.

A response from Pinterest about this. No pins are stored on your device. You can free up some hard drive space by going to your setting (gear icon) while using the app. Clear cache and browsing histories.

Thanks for starting this thread. My phone was running out of storage and Pinterst was taking 5GB. Thanks to iluv3rd for finding the solution. You all are great!

Thanks iluv3rd! Just did it on my phone and it cleared up a lot of room. I reinstalled the app and it is only taking up mb of space now!

Thank you SO much for the tip iluv3rd. I had no idea how to fix why the app was taking up SO much room. I pin WAY too much!
