I suggest you ...

Optimise the storage space used by the app

Current the app is using around 685mb of storage space after being installed for 6 months. Presumably this is because of the database/ back catalog of posts which have been marked read. However, I would have thought that this database should automatically decay and become redundant over time.685mb seems excessive for what the app does.

    Everything I could find around this issue pointed towards it being a bug in the Windows Phone storage management, rather than in RSS Central. Have any of the recent WP updates (GDR2 and GDR3) made this better for people?

        The growth seems to have slowed down since I posted this in May last year. I still have the same number of subscriptions but the app uses 856MB of data (at least according with the Storage Check app). All of it is showing as app data.

        Anything I can do on my end to help you diagnose?

        I've yet to discover exactly where the space is going. The next release of RSS Central will have some additional debugging code present that will hopefully help me to track this down.

        Agreed... my WP8 install is currently at 500MB of storage used.
