Please post sizes of your gospel library, so I know what size I need.

This would help me to choose what storage size I need in my tablet.

My iPhone currently has 1.27 GB used by gospel library, but I recently upgraded and haven't downloaded as much stuff as I normally have in my Gospel Library.

My iPad would probably be a better gauge of how much I use, and I don't have it in front of me right now, but last I noticed, I think it was around 6-7 GB.

Do you download audio and video for offline listening or for presenting at Church?
Do you prefer to have most content (for example, Church magazines back to 1971, etc.) installed right off the bat, or do you just download books as you need them?
Those are the big things that will determine how much space you need.

Why is the phrase "you can never have enough scripture material" come to mind.

I will have to admit that most of the audio will be hymns on the tablet, but I am trying to stay away from video.

I am just trying to gauge what is the minimum space requirement for having all the common everyday usage of a table with scripture study and reference without spending hundreds of dollars.

I just did some experiments to see how much space Gospel Library takes up in certain scenarios. With all of the English books/magazines/manuals downloaded, Gospel Library for Android takes up about 2.61 GB. Downloading the audio (male voice) for the English standard works moved the total to 6.74 GB. Downloading 5 videos from the most recent general conference put the total at 7.83 GB.
