News / Android Google Expands Maximum Android App Size to 4GB
Google is giving Android app developers a lot more room to work with, expanding the maximum Android app size from 50MB to 4GB

The size of the APK will still be restricted to 50MB, but developers can now add expansions files to the APK file.

• Each app can have two expansion files, each one up to 2GB, in whatever format you choose.
• Android Market will host the files to save you the hassle and cost of file serving.
• Users will see the total size of your app and all of the downloads before they install/purchase.

The app will download the expansion files the first time it runs, which is done through a downloader library which Google have provided on their Android Developers blog.
