The space taken up by "Apps" in the gas gauge includes the data STORED by the app.

So, for example, all photos in Camera+ that are NOT moved to the camera roll are stored in the app.

All your iBook purchases? Stored in the app. Nook, Kindle, Comics, Goodreads (crap you do a lot of reading)? Stored in the app.

The iHeartRadio cache? Stored in the app.

So that's why those apps take up a lot of space (and actually, 4GB is not a lot of space unless you have a 16GB or less device).
