When Tapped Out Uses All of your Storage

I was Lucky to get a update doesn't matter how I delete storage on my IPhone and IPad Tapped Out takes the majority of my storage I remember a couple of years ago The game said cleaning up obviously you can't activate it the MB's went Down massively It wasn't an update it just said on the start menu Cleaning up.

  • Next time try using google translate so that perhaps somebody could understand your message.
  • You can get a message saying there's no storage space left on your device. The game's update won't load until you delete something or clean out your junk storage space. But as the game keeps growing it goes past what some devices can handle and the update fails.

    I’m trying to forum Stand by answer Your Question to space MB huh not sure ok Clean junk storage fail your status move update d’oh Activate clean jbett baba ganoosh.

    Helps hope that

  • When i have the problem that the game won't accept an update because device is too full, i go to settings > storage > cache > clear cache. This frees up a few gig of wasted space. Maybe you can try that if you haven't already.

    I have an iPad Pro with 128gb of storage and this is exactly how much space Tapped Out takes up on my device. I don’t understand how you guys are always saying you are out of space. I have been playing since March 1, 2012. The very first day and I have never had a storage issue.

    .... although you may need several GB of free space to actually run the game. Many players have stated they require 4-5GB to stop the redownloading issue.

  • Also, since iOS 13 launched. Apps themselves and the future update downloads take up less storage on iOS devices.

    Mine is a Lot larger than that. Just to test it, just now I uninstalled TSTO from my device, and went to Play Store to get it again.

    After it "installed" in the Playstore, I ignored the Play Store's "Open" option and instead checked my "apps" in my settings. Here's the screen for Tapped Out at that stage

    Then I opened TSTO and it began installing, asked my age, and a few moments later I got this popup:

    I clicked my okay, and TSTO installed (?) while the donut spun. And spun.
    After it finally finished, I did not "tap to continue". That is, I did not enter/load my town. I closed the program and rechecked my settings and it gave me this info:

    That's storage. So, I have absolutely no clue how yours can be so low. What am I doing wrong?

    BTW, when I "clear data" it goes back to the low numbers and when I return to click to play the game it soon takes me back to the popupmessage about needing space and the donut spins while it loads again and when I recheck settings the app shows those same HIGH numbers. 2.15 GB total.
    NOTE: Of course, after it loads and the donut stops spinning, I click "tap to continue" and it then loads my town after the donut spins for a few moments.

  • The highest mine has been was 1.5GB & that was years ago. Since then it has maintained itself way below 1GB. My advice to the OP is for him/her to check their device storage and see what’s eating up the space. This is what I always recommend to all users daily as I deal with this a lot at work.

    My app also uses 2.16GB of storage. It's not really an issue for the (android) device I play it on, but I assumed that this was the norm.
  • I have TSTO on an external SD Card, which I unmount and mount every night and plug it back in every morning.

    I used to have it on my phone as apart of the internal storage, but it quickly became a data hog and I had to come up with a compromised to be able to keep playing.

  • I think there are at least 2 versions for each OS. A hi-res graphics version for newer devices (2GB) and a low-res version for older devices (1GB). LPN would likely know more about it.

    Interesting!
    I'm definitely using hi-res version.

    Never used one of those. Always androids. Different brands, but always chose models with the very highest resolution available. Maybe that's been the problem for me?

    So how on earth does 132mb + 1755mb = 2.15gb then. :o:o:o
