    Default "Insufficient storage available" message on app update

    This may not be the right forum to post this question. Forgive me, but i trust y'alls experience here.

    I received an "insufficient storage available" when i went to update an app on my sick nexus 7. There seems to be no clear solution from what I read. Also no rhyme or reason, given that I have about a GB left. Any advice from here?

    Is it possible that the app is bigger than the 1 gig? I've seen it.

    Nah, it's only 12 MB in size. I read that others had similar issues, plenty of space, but still the error. There seems to be no rhyme or reason and no good solution. Maybe it's time to root the Nexus 7 too... :-)

    Usually just trying again, or a couple times, will get past that. Though if you are down to 1 gig or less of storage it's probably time to free up some space

    I rebooted and tried two more times, no luck. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled the app....bingo!

    I guess this is what I get for getting the 8 gig Nexus 7 and playing the 3.5+ GB Bard's Tale... :-P

    If you are referring to the game, great fun! The dialog is exceptional hilarious in places.
