Thanks Alwyn for your feedback and I'm glad it all worked.
I'm fairly new to this iOS stuff with an older iPad 2, and keeping it's small 13± GB available storage trimmed is a real challenge I find.
As for deleting surplus data I found all kinds of goofy suggestions including one wiki "How To" complete with pictures saying to delete the app and its data then download and reinstall it. They have to be kidding!!!
For your newspaper subscription, the newspaper or app site should have directions for deleting old issues and you can probably find them listed in the app you use, then in one of the views there should be a Red X or Delete or look for an Edit option and when selected, it should give you the option to select and delete the issue.
No need to delete the whole app and associated data, that's just stupid if that is the suggested method, but I doubt that it is.
PS: I finally got p'd off with Apple's restrictions and jailbroke my iPad and then proceeded to use iClean
and was able to remove over 2GB of surplus languages and other unneeded junk. To H_ll with Apple's methods.
