App is using all the Ipad Space

I have written an app to reserve my conference room using a Sharepoint calendar.  The Ipad has 11gb of free space.  Nothing is written locally from the app.  After about 3 weeks the Ipad storage shows full and indicates that Powerapps is using all 11gb of space.  Is there log files I have do deal with?  Is there something I need to diable?  Debug mode?

Hi @dakridge

 

We are adding some UI to the mobile PowerApps client to clear local cache. This will help you reset the local cache. This should be out in the next month. For now, you can delete PowerApps from your device and reinstall it again. This will have the same effect of clearing your local cache. Let me know if this works for you.

So this is a known issue?

We know that the space that PowerApps uses can grow but we didn't have any cases where it got this big. We hope that the UI that we are adding will help in such cases. 

Then that explains why there was no information anywhere on the web or in the community.  I thought I was loosing my mind.  I'll look forward to the update.  Will you post to this thread when it's ready so I can test?

Yes. I will try to share the update. However, in the meantime, can you try the workaround of deleting PowerApps and installing it again? this will get the space required to around 100MB at most. 

Yep, it's already done.  I'm going to track the space over the next week and see how much it's taking.  Thank you for your response.
