    So after the recent storage check update I wanted to clear my temp files to get more storage. While i was doing it i noticed something regarding one app (Throw the knife). As you can see it says 438 mb on my phone but only 35 mb on the store. I am confused might be something just silly, but just wanted to clear it out.

    It is of course possible that the app has a bug and is storing lots of data in its storage area.

    Apps that download a lot of content will use more space than the store says, but if they otherwise create log files etc. then it will also use space.

    Of course until now no one would ever have known...

    I was curious because its not even that big of game. I would understand if it even doubled from 35 to 70 or even 105. But i just don't understand how it can use that much storage.

    The app you download in the store is a compressed file, when it is installed on the machine it installs which then takes up more space.
