So yesterday as i was taking a selfie, which is what i do best, i got a notification that i didnt have enough memory left to store anymore pictures. My god that felt like my worst nightmare.

Anyways i went to check my storage capacity in my settings. I have 16GB capacity but only 605MB left and that was after I deleted a few pictures and apps here and there but didnt do much difference.

So i checked through the storage settings and apparently a file called .skimble has been using upto 6GB of my phone memory. Im not sure what to do because i dont wanna click and delete it and then find that my whole account has been wiped out but i need that space to store more selfies haha

Okay anyways i just wanted to see if this has happened with anyone else or if anyone has any type of solution for this problem. Id really appreciate it

Hey Touma. Yeah Skimble is a bit of a memory hog and I havent found a way to run it off the phones SD card. What Ive done a few times now is go to the app settings and scrolled down to the Cache Memory option. It shows that the app is using 1GB of space, but in reality probably more. On that setting there is an option to tap to clear the cache. This clears out any skimble workout vids and pics that are downloaded on each workout. Works short term but then have to do the same thing...

Heyy Touma, .skimble really uses a lot of our mobile space..i also experience it, and it has some important files in it but majority are cache and of no use, so you do this(I do that regularly) : Connect your phone to pc, open .skimble and delete the useless files in it like audio cache, image cache etc. It has some important things like your offline workouts too, so make sure you don't delete it.  The most space in your mobile must be taken by "image cache", and also there must be a lot of files starting with word "post..", you must delete both of them and also when you will open .skimble, you yourself will understand the things that are useless and should be deleted. And make sure to delete the things regularly in it, it saves a lot of space.
You can delete them in phone itself but it will take a lot of time deleting around 6 GB of data, and deleting through pc can be convenient.

Same here!  It runs the memory up quickly just scrolling through everyone's workout notifications, pics, forums, etc... I just go to the menu and click settings then scroll down to cache and clear.  This usually puts it back to the original space used when it's first installed.

I had the same problem and was wondering where the f. All My space was gone. Installed storage analyzer and it showed me skimble took almost 7gb...
Isn't there any option for saving all workouts on sd card?

Not sure about the SD. If I remember correctly, the memory issue wasn't always like this. Or not as bad anyway.
