How large should app be?

I have an LG volt, just noticed the DC app shows 577M (storage is on SD card). Seems really large, does that sound right, or could I have some problem with install that left extra things lying about. tnx

Varies with device

The app's install size varies with device (Version of the app installed "3 to 10MB), the additional MB or GB of storage used by the app is the metadata (Episode titles, show notes, & feed thumbnails) from your/default feed/podcast subscriptions...plus downloaded media files (Audio or Video) can be from 250 MB to the total amount of storage space available for media downloads

OK thanks, the cobwebs are

OK thanks, the cobwebs are clearing from my brain and I remember now I wasn't able to move the storage to the SD card because of the version of Android I was running, so the space is all being taken up by media files. The app is 15MB, the rest is media. I guess I should go back and revisit that to see if I can move files to SD card now. I'm running 4.4.2, as I recall that is the release that won't allow storage to be on SD card.
