App Size Limit, what size limit! Now 4 GB app allowed on Android Market

''Google is giving Android app developers a lot more room to work with, expanding the maximum Android app size from 50MB to 4GB.

Although Android apps were free to exceed the size limit before, developers had to host the data on their own. For users, that meant downloading additional files from within the app after installing the core app from the Android Market.''

I saw that in the android dashboard and took no notice. It's only after reading your post that I noticed it was GB, not MB! That's immense!

Appears it has alot to do with higher density graphics and increasing complexity of what's possible.
