If you're anything like me you managed to fill that 16gb iPhone in no time.  I tried deleting what I wasn't using anymore but that didn't get me very far, there's no procedure on the iPhone to sort by size so I couldn't see what was taking up all the space.  Unfortunately TreeSize isn't an available app but this trick will help you find whatever apps are taking the most space on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and remove them.

1.  Sync your device with your PC

2.  Click Apps in the left menu

3.  Change the view to list view

4.  sort by size

5.  And there's your problem!  600 megabyte game demos.  Within a few minutes I was able to free nearly 2 gigabyte of space.

This isn't really accurate. You are sorting by INSTALL size.

The Stanza App was taking over 2 GB of space with its downloaded books, yet only shows a 9.8MB size in iTunes.
