What is taking up "Other" space on my iPhone?
Clicking the mark as good answer button helps us highlight the best answers.
There are, however, some legitimate things that are categorized as "Other" - MMS and SMS as mentioned earlier, cover art from music files (you may have some that are ridiculously large res), and temporary internet files & cached data. You can purge caches from apps in the "Settings" for most apps.
While I was using the app, I found that I could clear the "other" data by using the Restore function. It took a lot of time to restore the iPad, but afterwards the "Other" data (which at one point took up more than 4GB) would be a much more reasonable .3GB.
