[h=1]Android Apps Gain Some Heft: Now up to 4 GB[/h] http://www.talkandroid.com/97048-android-apps-gain-some-heft-now-up-to-4-gb/#disqus_thread

Android app developers will have a much bigger world to explore from now on. The Android Developers Blog has announced that the maximum size for an Android app will no longer be 50 MB, but 4 GB. This will open the door for apps that need all the resources they can get, like 3D games. The APK file for an app will still be limited to 50 MB, but now there is the ability to add two expansion files that can be up to 2 GB each. These files will be hosted by the Android Market, and that will translate to savings for the developers as they no longer need to pay for the file serving. The blog had some good news for people downloading the apps, as well. You’ll now be able to see the total size of the app before you purchase it, and the download of the expansion files should start automatically on most newer devices. Best of all, the 15 minute refund time frame won’t start until after the download finishes. You’ll no longer miss some of your time to consider if you like the app on a lengthy download. Check out the source link below to get the nitty gritty details of these changes. source: Android Developers Blog
