Storage requirements for SkySafari 6 versions?

All of the data must be installed on the internal drive. One presumes that Plus takes more storage and that Pro takes even more storage. Your FAQs say that the buyer is just shafted if your software will not fit on their device, but I cannot find anywhere that tells me how much internal storage must be available in order to run your software without first deleting all other software (and maybe not even then). Data footprint for each version should be part of the standard spec listed right along with Android flavor required.
How much storage does SkySafari 6 Pro for Android take?

As an aside, waiting until the end of the online "Submit a Request" form to tell people that you do not accept requests for SkySafari is very insulting.

    Going by how much my free space dropped, it looks like just under 2 GB is needed for SkySafari Pro 6. I don't know how much space is needed during the install. I had about 5.85 GB free when I installed and 3.95 afterward.

    Thanks. That is a good place to start. Google Play shows it (Pro) as a 14MB app and I did not believe it.

    Glad to help. I'd allow a little forgiveness for the developers.  They used to post a warning about the big supplemental download beyond the minimal starter install file.  Call it a release *.0 flub.  I'm among the long time SkySafari Pro users who didn't think about a warning on new installs where the user wouldn't know.

    The basic app is 14MB, however the extra data files are either 580MB (Plus) or 1.84 MB (Pro).  Google Play is just screwing up here.  They install the extra data along with the app and know how big it is.  It used to give the combined size in previous versions, not sure why it is not now.

    We will see if we can't add some of the info to the text of the app description.
