Dont get me wrong i dont mind reinstalling 99% of apps. Its just the biggies which are a pain. As i said Bards Tale was a nightmare as the app size was huge, they kept updating that but as i only had say 800 mb left i had to keep freeing up space for the update.

Any 'tiddlers' are fine if its the whole file, just the big 1GB + games are a nightmare. To be fair i should delete more stuff on my gadget though !

I've got iOS 4.x so that's not the case. Perhaps apple allowed those patches when iOS 6 came.

I don't mind too much apart from the fact it requires current space, plus download space and then install spec (some games being worse than others). Then it gets annoying, especially if the game doesn't have icloud support so you can't delete the original to make room for the update.
