Android Market apps sizes upgraded from 50MB to 4GB

We keep hearing great news from Google I/O this year especially for developers, who have been the center of attention of Google. Google announced today, in addition to the upcoming improvements to the Android Market, that the application size will be upgraded from the usual limit of 50MB to a crazy 4GB. The 50MB size limit for apps has been working great so far but with the recent releases of dual-core phones and tablets, larger apps such as the gaming apps were needed to accommodate the power of these processors.

This increase in size for Android apps will eliminate secondary installs which means that you won’t need to install that extra content/data that comes with some apps. This is great news for developers who, in my opinion, are going to have more tools to use to create apps that can work on specific devices and can manually exclude or blacklist all non-compatible devices from downloading them.
