Clearing app data?
I was trying to clean up my girls ally last night. I noticed that facebook was over 57mb. But there is no option to clear the data, only cache. I am running a D1 with 2.2 and when i go into apps I can clear data to free up space. Is there any way of doing this on the ally? if she keeps going like this she will be out of space in a few weeks.

1. Try Force Closing the apps and see what happens.
2. do a factory data reset (generally overkill but sometimes the only way to fix these glitches)

She is on 2.1 so all apps are on board.
I might of discovered a way to clear it. If you log out and log back in. I was working on my mom DINC and logged out of her facebook and it gave me a warning that doing so would clear all data. I am going to try that on the ally tonight and see if it helps.
Get home last night and facebook was at 80mb....holy crap!
I logged out and that did nothing. Did force stop did nothing. Rebooted the phone still nothing. I finally uninstalled the updates and it dropped back to less then 1mb. So i reinstalled the updates and she logged back in. Was on FB for maybe 5min and I looked and the app was already over 2mb.
I think this is a facebook update that is causing the issues and not a phone/android issue. Hopefully an update will come out and fix this.
