Android :: Application - Apk - Maximum Size
I am going to install first application in my android phone, but having some doubts
related to Android Memory (Maximum size of APK).
Help me know and solve the problems:
What is maximum size of the apk that can be supported by the android ?
When we install any apk file in real phone, where does application installed (in SD-card or other memory) ??
I have referred this link: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/7965885da4d1a03a and also searched lot.
I came Across the search on the web that many people are facing the same issue What is the maximum size of Application supported by Android. I think this question also help to the people who are connected with Android application programming and development.
This time i am having 58Mb application from that 52.5MB Images and it runs on the my HTC Hero mobile but On Emulator, it shows an error:
Failed to upload my_application.apk on device 'emulator-5554'
java.io.IOException: Unable to upload file: No space left on device
Way to store images inside the Drawable folder? is there any way to zip the images or such method?

Android :: Maximum Size When Parsing XML With DOM
Currently I'm implementing a REST client which shall parse the XML response messages. It is intended, later, to be running on an Android device. Thus, memory and processing speed is quite an issue. However there will be only one XML response at a time so processing or holding multiple XML documents at a time is not an issue.
As fas as I understood there are three ways of parsing XML with the Android SDK:
Reading about these different parsing methods I got that SAX is recommended for large XML files as it won't hold the complete tree in memory like DOM.
However, I'm asking myself what is large in terms of kilobytes, megabytes, ...? Is there a practical size up to which it does not really matter whether using SAX or DOM?

What is the maximum size that android application can hold? I have one database(.sqlite extension) file with 147 mb, Is it possible to include that file in my app.?I tried to put it in my asset folder but while running it showing message like "No space left on device".
Android :: Programmatically Get Maximum Heap Size
I have an app which does a bunch of image manipulations, and those images are ideally full-screen sized. It works on a G1 (or HVGA emulator), but runs out of memory on a WVGA emulator instance, because full-screen images use twice as many pixels. Fine, I can work around it by manipulating smaller images, then scaling up to WVGA at the end. There's some loss of image quality, but this is unavoidable on a WVGA device with a 16MB heap limit, so I'll live with that.
When a real WVGA device hits the streets in the next couple of months, though, it's likely to have more than 16MB heap per app, for just this kind of reason. So for best image quality, I'd like my app to adapt to this situation, and use full-screen-sized images on such a device. IOW, I'd like to implement a heuristic which sets the image size based on heap size.
In order to do so, however, the app needs to know what the maximum heap size is, and I haven't yet found an SDK call which will return this information. The various Debug.get* memory calls all seem to be to do with how much heap you have *allocated*, not how much you theoretically *can* allocate. I understand that this isn't necessarily a hard number, that issues like fragmentation and GC mean that you may not actually be able to allocate every last byte, but a theoretical number would still be useful.
Can anyone point me to an SDK call I've missed?
Android :: Maximum Size Of SQLite Database
I have a SQLite db that size is over 2.6 GiB. (The db contains maps.)
This db is used by RMaps app. When move the maps to some parts at maximum zoom, the app suddenly closes.
However, there is no force close message, no report button. So, I've got an idea that it is caused by reading blocks that are beyond a certain limit e.g. max(int). Since RMaps is just using simple SQL statements, I think that the problem is not in RMaps but rather in Android SQLite driver.
Is there a size limit of SQLite database on Android?
(I have Froyo on Nexus One, but I do not think that this is just a problem of Froyo.)
UPDATE: Log output:
UPDATE2: The SQLite db is stored on SD card, there is enough space.
Android :: Maximum Size Of App That Can Upload To Market
I have 3 video files each of 70 MB in my raw folder besides other audio files of few KBs. I am getting an installation error of insufficient space on the DROID while testing my app. I tried uninstalling apps and am now left with apps that are essential to the device.
What needs to be done to resolve this issue? I also wonder what will be the app size that i am allowed to upload to the android market?
Android : Maximum Size That VM Allocate For Loading A Image With BitmapFactory?
Some of you may met the same problem, I was using BitmapFactory.decodeStream, and got this exception: Code...
I know the reason is because the BitmapFactory is trying to decode an uncompressed version of a big image(in my situation, jpg). I can use BitmapFactory.Options.inSampleSize to fix it. but my question is what's the maximum size that VM would like to allocate for loading a image with BitmapFactory? so I can do some scale before it loads.
Android :: Scale Image To Maximum Size In Dialog-style Activity
I have an activity which uses android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Dialog". The activity contains an ImageView which can show images of different dimensions. The ImageView should scale the Image so that it entirely fits into the window, at least on axes fits entirely and maintains the original aspect ratio. The size of the dialog should only be as large as the ImageView (plus its border width).
I tried the following but the dialog window always uses the whole available space:
Android :: Determine Droid Database Maximum Size And Prevent SQLiteFullException?
I have few queries on Android SQLiteDatabase
1.) As normally the database stored in internal memory, can we specify the path of external storage and use it in similar way ?
2.) How to determine the size of available space of database ? I used getMaximumSize() from SQLIteDatabase class but that gives me 1099511626752
Is this in bytes ? If assumed then this seems to be too large and not practical. I am using HTC G1 to test this.
3.) How can I determine the size of an entry in table ? Or do I have to pull the whole table and manually see its size. Is it same that would be in phone storage ?
4.) Can I check if any free space available before making entry in database ? I want to prevent SQLiteFullException.
Android :: Installed Application Size Vs APK File Size
Can somebody explain to me what makes up the installed application size? I have an apk that is about 8 MB, and often when I install I get the INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE error. I have around 25-30 MB free space on the phone. I'm doing debugging so I have to upload lots of new versions. If I uninstall the previous version then I can install the new version. The application manager claims that the app is taking up 22 MB. So back to the original question, how come the app is taking up 22 MB when it really only is 8 MB?
Android :: Application Max Heap Size
I noticed when you create an AVD now that you can set an application max heap size. I found that when I did WVGA800 it was set to 24. So it looks like it's more than the 16 we are used to.
I there an API method to get the value of this max heap size? I haven't looked into that yet.
Android :: Rule For Size Of Application
I read this quote in one of the webpages: If you are writing a large application, consider dividing it into a suite of applications and services. Smaller applications load faster and use fewer resources. Making a suite of applications, content providers, and services makes your code more open to incorporation into other applications as described the "Use and be used" tip. Is this true? What is the thumb rule for the size of app?
Android :: Reduce File Size Of Application In Market
I want to reduce the file size of my application in the market. The strange thing is that my application "LeonardFrog.apk" just uses 4mb but the Google-Market shows me that it uses 8mb. You can search for it (Leonard Frog Beta) in the market. How can this be???
In my application, there are many images and long sounds. My folder "res" just uses 3,7mb and there is nothing else in my game beside the quellcode. So WHY is the size of my game in the market 8mb?
Android :: Market Reporting Wrong Application Size
I've just released an update to my app and the apk file is 3.5mb on my system. It is reported as 3.5mb in the developer console. But in the market it is showing up as 7.02mb. I'm now getting comments that that app is too big and I feel people may not purchase it if they think it will take up 7mb of space.
Android :: Calculate Size Of An Installed Droid Application / Package?
I'm looking for a way to calculate the size of an installed Android application/package. I can't find this information in neither ApplicationInfo nor PackageInfo objects. From the ApplicationInfo I can get the path for the data and the app itself. Data is a directory structure, but when attempting to read it recursivly I get a nullpointer. Is there any better way of doing it? Any sample code?
HTC Desire :: Internal Memory - Battery Life - Apple Applications - Average Size Of Application?
I want to buy the HTC Desire or the Samsung Galaxy S. At the moment I prefer the HTC Desire. It's smaller, feels better and has flash which the Samsung lacks. But when I read the fact that the HTC Desire is very limited in internal memory for installing apps and the fact that you can't transfer a lot of apps to your sd card with the help of the froyo 2.2 update got me thinking again about which phone I should pick. I don't want to buy the phone and later regret that I don't have enough space for apps. That's not the only thing that is bothering me. So I want to ask a few questions.
1: What is the average number of apps you can install on the internal memory (so without SD card) of the HTC Desire if you installed update 2.2?
2: Let's say I use internet 2 hours a day, watch movies, listen to music 2 hours a day and also call people 1 hour and send a few text messages. If I do this everyday will I have to charge my battery everyday or will it last longer?
3: Can you install apple apps on HTC desire?
4: What is the average size of an application?
Android :: How Do I Make My Image View Fixed Size Regardless Of Size Of Bitmap
So I'm loading images from a web service, but the size of the images are sometimes smaller or bigger than other images and the visualization looks silly when I put them in a ListView in android. I'd like to fix the size of my ImageView so that it only shows a portion of the image if it's larger than a preset amount. I've tried everything I can think of setting the setMaxWidth/setMaxHeight, setting the scale type to centerCrop, using ClipableDrawable wrapping my BitmapDrawable, setting using Drawable.setBounds(). I've tried setting in the XML and programmatically, but neither worked. I'm very surprised setting max width/height didn't do anything. Below is the XML I'm using ImageView definition in my layout file
Android :: About Size Of Resource Assets Files & Final Apk Size
I am currently developing a dictionary application with voice database. I would like to know about the current Android limitation on the file size. I am using a self-provided sqlite database ( > 50mb ) . I tested that once the built .apk size exceeds ~30mb the app will not be installed onto the simulator (INSTALL_FAILED_ INSUFFICIENT _STORAGE). Could anyone confirm me that if up until now there is no way to embed such large size files in a single apk ( Aimed to sell at Google Market without requiring user to download datafile afterwards). Also, is there a limitation of 1,048,576 bytes for a single file in the assets folder ?
Android :: Shared Library So Size Versus Apk Size
I would like to know why the size of my shared library .so is bigger than my .apk file generated with Eclipse? Approximatly the so size is twice the apk one. What is strange is after having installed it in the device (2.1 firmware) I checked the size of the apk when I uninstalled it from the device and surprisingly the apk size indicated is bigger even than the .so one. Is there any explaination of that?
Android :: Png Downloaded Size Different To Server Size?
My app downloads .png files to the sd card for later use. I kept getting OutOfMemoryErrors (if anyone could explain this too, that'd be great!) and so I took a look at the sizes of the images saved to the sd card, and they seem to be roughly double what they are on the server. Why is this, and how can I make them smaller?
public void onCreate(Bundle saved)
TextView t1 = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.rxn_text1);
TextView t2 = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.rxn_text2);
TextView t3 = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.rxn_text3);
TextView t4 = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.rxn_text4);
iv = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.rxn_image);
pb = (ProgressBar) findViewById(R.id.rxn_loading);
vs = (ViewSwitcher) findViewById(R.id.rxn_switch);
