Good news, Google has made app and game updates smaller once again

One of the problems with mobile gaming isn’t so much the games themselves, but the download sizes. This holds true with not just your initial update of a big game, but also the subsequent updates that games and apps get that also are big.

Sometimes apps literally become more trouble than they’re work. Instead of remaining the captain of a sinking ship, developers can choose to sell their app in its entirety on a newly-opened site called Apptopia.
