Do you keep your finished games installed "just in case" the dev updates them?

Do you keep your finished games installed "just in case" the dev updates them?

Just curious if you all keep your finished games installed on your iPhone "just in case" the developer updates them?

I only have room for 15 more apps before I will have to start deleting some. I have a bunch of games on my iPhone that I have completely finished, but I am hesitant to delete them. If the developer were to release an update with new levels, I'd have to start from scratch if I removed the game from the phone.

So, just curious to know what everyone else does.

I have a cydia app that backs up my save progresses on apps so if I delete them I don't have to worry about restarting them.

It depends on how much I enjoy the game and if it has replayablity. So technically, yes.

Mind to tell me the name of that app? I keep most games on the device, developers often add more puzzles and stuff. For Example Totemo got 32 new Puzzles delivered in an update.

The one I use is called AppBackup, its so incredibly quick & easy I love it. Takes mere seconds for it to back the game's data up; its pretty handy.

Yeah that's the one, very easy to use, and so very useful.

I wish there was a way to compress games/apps for further use so the don't take up as much space, but they're there if you need them.

Well, I've never deleted a paid app.

Well if you're keeping a paid app on your iPod just because you paid for it [I know that feeling ] just use AppBackup, then you can delete them and keep their data
