Hi everyone, I am not too computer savvy so I apologize ahead of time if this is a simple question. I've noticed that I can download many resources, that are large such as commentaries and dictionary series, on my logos app and this doesn't require too much space on my iPad. However, I downloaded the Vyrso app to use for some popular level reading books and I downloaded 123 resources (as opposed to 1595 on my logos app). When I look at my storage stats in my settings Vyrso is requiring 4 times the amount of space that logos requires. What is the reason for this?

Although space is tight on my iPad it's not a huge issue for me. At the end of the day I can delete Vyrso and just download those books on my logos app, which appears to require less space there. But I didn't know if I am experiencing a problem here that should not be.

There should be little difference between Vyrso, Bible or any of our mobile reader apps regarding space requirements for downloaded resources. So, if you download the same resources in each app there should only be a minor difference, but without knowing exactly which resources you've downloaded it's difficult to say what might be going on.

Books can be hundreds of pages and be small in file size, or a few pages but large in file size. Text doesn't take up much space by itself. Photos and other graphics would be an indicator of a larger resource file space wise.

In no case is this correct, so it would be good to figure out where the problem lay. Of course, there may not be any problem but rather just a difference in the resources you have downloaded. 

Some questions: did you download Vyrso recently? When did you download those 123 books? Have you installed Vyrso on this decivice previously and deleted it? How did you install the app?
