Hello. i am in urgent need of assistance. I have an Apple Ipad Air running IOS 8 the latest version of IOS 8 currently and It says the storage is full. When connected to my computer it doesn't have very much storage taken up by the Photos, podcasts and other apps, but at the bottom you know where it shows you what is taking up stuff on the Ipad with the blue bar for audio, the green bar I think for apps I think, but I forgot exact colors and stuff. But when I look at the bottom of my computer when Itunes is running onthe computer it has the storage for "OTHER, all the way accross the screen. I don't know what to do to find out the "OTHER," stuff that is blocking the rest of my storage. Because we have Audio, videos,  Apps, Documents, and "OTHER." I went to settings onmy Ipad, went to general, and then to "USE." I then clicked the button that says something like "Mannage Storage, " or something like that and It shows that Photos are not taking up very much space. and other apps are not. I really need URGENT HELP. How do I figure out what is taking up my storage so I can clear it out? THANK You!

It looks like you've already partially been down this path, but this provides more detail as to the less obvious things that contribute to "other" storage. The screenshots are from an earlier iOS release, but the ideas should remain true.
