Can't build APK version of my app

howto

#1

I started building my app on MIT AI2, but I exceeded the limit of file size so I decided to move to AppyBuildier offline. When I try to build my APK in it, it says “Sorry, can’t package projects larger than 20 MB”.

How can I bypass that limit?

First question is why is your app that big? Do you use large assets?

I’m using a lot of assets because have to use “GIFs”, unfortunately removing or resize them is not an option.

There is a trick you can do, you can keep all those images on a webserver and when the user runs your app for the first time, you download all those images on local memory https://puravidaapps.com/filebyfile.php After the first time run, your app will read them from local memory.

This solution I suspect requires a lot of effort to change the logic of your app.

I think I’ll have to do so, but why the offline version is limited to 20 MB?
