I dug around some more, looked to see which apps were taking up the most space, played around with some others and finally found the culprit. And a solution!
Clear the cache in your Pinterest app! For me, it was that simple. I use Pinterest almost exclusively on my phone. And it shows in the cache. When I discovered this, my cache was 4GB.
So, here's how you fix it.
- Open your Pinterest app and click on the person tab at the bottom.
- Click on the settings gear in the top left corner.
- Click on Account settings.
- Scroll all the way down to the bottom of your Account settings page.
- Clear all three caches.
There are a few other apps that have browsing history or caches to clear as well. Be sure to check your settings and clear out what you can from time to time. Also, if you have the Kindle app, double check how many books you actually have on your device. If you delete the ones you don't actually need on your device, you can free up some space that way, too.
So, go clear out and start taking photos again!
