I’ve been using Vine for the past couple of days since it was released and noticed that as I view peoples Vines and cancel ones that I decide not to upload, the amount of space the app took up increased significantly. The app size itself is only 8.2 MB but since its release it has gone up to 837 MB. Why? Because I have posted one, canceled 4, and browsed around 400 different Vines all of which are stored on your device in the background.
What to do?
First Option- You can download a program like iExplorer and go into Vines “tmp” folder and delete or save as you please. What happens when you delete them from iExplorer? Nothing other than freeing up space. My posts and likes are still on my profile but the ones I didn’t post are deleted which was my initial intention.
Second Option- You can also go into Settings>General>Usage and delete the app along with its contents, this will free up everything and you can just re-download the app. The only difference is that you can’t save any of your none posted Vines but it gets the job done. I do want to mention again that every Vine that you load is stored whether you “like” it or not.
