Sizeable Question

Hey Guys,

I am near completion of my app (details soon) and am worried about the size of teh file. I think apple compresses the file but i do not know to what extent. Is a 10 Mb file ok? I want it to be downloaded without Wi-fi? The images are all .png. Should i maybe use .jpeg? Thank you

10Mb is fine. Apple raised the limit to 20Mb for non-wifi download.

The file size for your app on the App Store will be somewhere in size between the compressed and uncompressed size of your .app file. Probably a bit nearer to the compressed size from what I have heard.

As long as that is below 20MB, then you are OK for cellular downloads.
