Google today announced via the Android Developers Blog that applications no longer have to adhere to a 50MB limit. Moving forward, developers will be able to offer application up to 4GB in size (two 2GB downloads). The increase in size is accomplished by allowing developers to attach expansion files to Android APKs. According to Google, the expansion files will be downloaded by Android devices separately, and users will know the size of the total install size prior to downloading. Upping the maximum size from 50MB to 4GB will give developers more freedom to create appealing and expansive Android applications.
