Posted by: 26 May 2011 3 Comments

Want to know how much space an app is occupying on your iOS device ? Though you can see the total space left on your device by going to settings, but you can’t see the size of an app currently installed. AppSize is an app that lets you check app size and installation date. The good thing about this app is that, it does not occupy any space on your iPhone screen, as no icon is added after installation.

To check the app size follow the steps below.

1. First, jailbreak your device. If you haven’t yet jailbroken your device follow these posts. To jailbreak your iOS device via sn0wbreeze follow this guide and for Redsn0w [Windows] follow the guide posted here.

2. Install AppSize from Cydia.

3. Once the app is installed, hold your Home button and tap the app for which you want to check the size.

4. A pop-up notification showing the App Info, which includes, App Name, Size and the installation date will appear on the screen.Appsize iPhone Cydia How to Check App Size & Installation Date on iPhone [Cydia Tweak]
