internal memory usage

Recently I noticed a decrese in internal memory, I had +/- 144Mb free and now I have +/- 130Mb free. Meanwhile I only installed foursquare and Best Wallpapers and moved both to SD. Also, I haven't add any contacts. My question is what apps might be using those +/- 14Mb as I haven't installed anyhting else? Could it be facebook and twitter updates in Timescape (although it is a large amount of Mb for updates...)?

Re: internal memory usage

yes it could be anything
or if you surf internet anf if your wifi remains on while using apps, they may download cache
so try clearing cache (settings> applications manage app> all> any app like browser> clear cache )

download android booster from android market to clear cache of all the apps in one go

Re: internal memory usage

thank you! I deleted facebook, browser and google play's cache as each was using +/- 6Mb and it increased a little. I'll check back then! I guess cleaning some apps' cache every now and then is advised then?

Re: internal memory usage

The one that can very take up a lot of space is Facebook, and it can increase very quickly. I was a little scared to clear the change initially, but you just have to sign in again and all is well.

I know that others have mentioned this above, but it seems to be a very common one and might help people searching for answers in future.
