    Too many great games and apps, and not enough space! :mad:

    Any of you struggling with trying to make everything fit into your iDevice? I have an 8gig.

    Whenever I see people ask whether they should get an 8gb or 32gb, I always say 32gb and this is exactly why. Sure, they may not use most of the 32gb, but at least they won't have to worry about managing their media/apps.

    Anyways, sorry to hear about your current predicament, hope you figure out what you can delete off your iPod!

    I just carefully deselected the games and apps I'm not currently using in iTunes. I have 1.9gigs available now. Hopefully that'll be enough for Spider-Man: Total Mayhem (yes, I'm one of the 4 people who hasn't bought it yet), and the 2 other big games I'd like to get later.

    Of course, if I'd gotten a bigger iPod, I wouldn't have to do so much app juggling, and I could have actually finished Grand Theft Auto. :D But I'll likely get back to it later.

    Cheers

    Very true. At least once a week I have to spend about 10 to 15 minutes on just managing media, and adding and removing songs, apps, and games. 8gigs is not enough for an iPod touch or iPhone.

    All is well now. If only my favorite games weren't so friggen huge. :D Crimson Gem Saga, Modern Combat 2, and Grand Theft Auto are about 700mb each. If I had all 3 on here, I wouldn't have much room for anything else.

    Wow, I didn't even know they made an 8 gig. I have a 32 gig phone and if I put all of my music on I would have no space left. So I have to manage the crap out of everything. That must be terrible for 8 gigs.

    Yeah, even though I was never going to use all 32 gigs of my iPT, 8gig is just not enough.

    It is so hard deleting games off your device as you always think, yeah I will play that later.

    8GB is plenty when you don't fill it with crap like music and video. I have around 300 games on mine as of this post. No one in the entire world needs to carry more than 300 games around with them all the time. You could play those 300 for six months or so, then twice a year (which isn't much, so if you're moaning about the process you're nitpicking) swap them over with another 300 from your PC (which should basically have infinite space for app storage) and you're set for another six months.

    I have an 8gb iPhone and about 3gb is still free. Then again, I use Spotify for my music (although I do cache it to the phone).

    Man, I hear you on that! I suffered for 2 years while owning an 8G/2Gen Touch. I like having tons of games on my device. A personal preference. There's reasons for this but won't go into it but I was constantly replacing games so others could fit.
    Never again will I own this small of gig device. After learning my lesson decided to jump to the biggest Gig available and I'm in awe of all that space now available.

    Maybe back when the AppStore was first announced, 8gb might have been fine, but looking at the way games are expanding in size, now they aren't. RAGE for iPhone is going to be around 1.5gb, so you do need a bigger device if you want all the latest games.

    Fortunately I own both a PS3 and 360, so buying RAGE on iOS would be a ridiculous move for me to make anyway.

    When I decided to upgrade my 2G iPod Touch, I made the mistake of initially getting the 4G 8 gig, and what a mistake that was. Call me weird, but I use my Touch primarily for music, and even paring down to what I listen to the most and only the games I've played the most, I was still left with only a gig or so for any new apps.

    Within two weeks, I had it up on ebay, sold it for a 20 dollar loss, and went out to get the 32 gig model, and haven't regretted it since.

    At this point, Apple needs to do away with any future 8 gig versions of anything.

    I got the 32GB iP4 and I've only got 10 left.

    Yea, I was going to mention this too. They should do away with the 8g Touch. It has become obsolete, or will be when games get even bigger. (as was mentioned earlier).
    Maybe some are in need for just an 8g but I don't feel its in the majority.

    Now that they stripped the camera out of the Nano, an 8 gig for that would make sense, but nit an iP4, especially when you can take videos with it, and those really eat up the space.

    The thing is, that's part of their strategy. They know that 8gb won't be enough, so they want people to pay the extra $70 for the 32gb.
