Why OSM Android app size is so big?

  • English Users

    I just have a general question, why does the OSM android app have such a huge size. I mean 90mb is quite a large size for a management game. It deters me to download it, if I have to use OSM on mobile I just use the mobile website. Are there are any reasons for that?

  • Hi mate,

    You only have to download 90MB when installing the App, and this whole size is just to reduce the amount of info you need to exchange when playing on it with servers.

    I can give you some things that justify the size: 17 languages, several screens with images....
