Thread: Find out how much space each app takes up

    Default Find out how much space each app takes up
    Hey guys

    I ran out of space on my iPhone, so I was trying to figure out what apps to delete to make room. I realized there's no convenient way of figuring out how much space each app uses, so I came up with an idea.

    From your command prompt on your iPhone, paste this command in:
    (cd /private/var/mobile/Applications ; du -k |grep '\./[^/]*$' | while read L ; do DIR=`echo $L|cut -d/ -f 2` ; SZ=`echo $L|cut -d\ -f 1` ; printf "%10.d " $SZ ; ls -d $DIR/*.app; done | sort)

    It can take a minute if you have a lot of apps installed.

    It will give you a readout that looks a little like this:


    Code:
         13392  9CC26280-7F25-401C-B207-9FFAD23CADA3/BBC News.app

       1936240  75835953-60AF-4B42-8FDD-F28C9939098A/CoPilot_NA.app
    The amount of space, in KB that the app takes up is on the left. On the right is the app's foldername/name.

    Hope you find this useful

    The iTunes interface only shows the program size, and doesn't include the data size. So if you have an app that's 20MB, but it's got 100MB in data, in iTunes it will only show up as 20MB.

    Minute Dreamer great work! but I can't get it to type that in terminal, its long and to be honest im not experienced in terminal and don't know the first thing about commands, marks, etc. i tried to do it but gibberish came out and im sure i messed up on one of the commands it took me some time to find each symbol. im newbie

    sooo, I was wondering if you knew a way i could paste that into terminal, i did a google search and found pasting into terminal is apparentely not so apparent. some people mentionned pasteboardstacker, that is no longer available in cydia so thats not an option.

    ANY help is appreciated i really would like to know how to much app/data is on my phone, btw how did you do it, just type that into terminal? thanks in advance
