In App size increased by 6.5 MByte after upgrade to CBL 1.2.0, I complained about a massive increase of apk size when upgrading to CBL 1.2.0. I got promised that the size will be reduced.
So now I tried replacing 1.2.0 to 1.3.0, just to find out that the size again increased massively. For an app that previously had 5.8 MB, we are now at 8.9 MB.
This is not a theoretical issue. From my own experience with Android smartphones, I know that app size is a pain for many users. Those phones come with lots of non-removable Google bloatware, and after installing a few apps of the user’s choice, storage gets short. So a library that increases app size is a major obstacle for a developer to get his app accepted by users.
Before 1.2.0, we were below 2 MB. How should I explain my users an increase by a factor of 5, for the same functionality?
