For all they don't seem that big, I can usually free up about 20mb that way. Trouble is they reinstall automatically every so often - so if anyone can tell me how to stop that? I keep thinking I have then it happens again. And I suppose if you use maps then its not necessarily the best solution!
Uncheck update automatically in play store, goto my apps, select the app and uncheck the option.
The only app you cannot stop from updating itself is the play store. But that can also be stopped if you have root.
There are many cache cleaning apps in the market, you can use those. Cache won't get you much space, apps don't have much cache to make much difference.
