Reducing my Binaries Size    
This topic is assigned to Victor

Hello

My Approved App went from 3.03mb on SC to 52.5 MB on Apple Store.

My direct Competitor's Apps are around the 12-15mb size.

What could be causing such a huge difference and what can I do to reduce it?
If I substitute the PDFTron pages for two text pages will that make a big difference and would I have to resubmit?

The App has
1 Notification Page
1 Notification Topics Page
1 Form Page
1 Notepad Page
1 Link to Website Gallery
1 Link to Website
1 Contact Us Page with links
1 Calendar Page
1 Native Gallery Page
1 Puzzle Page
2 PDFTron Pages
3 Text Pages

Hello Aidan,

Once an application is built, it will have the Source Code and Library files for each page type. The lib files's sizes may variate from 2 to 20 MB. The Page types with largest Library file are PDFTron, ePub, PDF Editor and PDF Reader.

So if you remove the PDFTron Pages from your App, this will significantly decrease the binary size. 

best regards,
Victor,
SC Team.
