What's the JAR Size Limit?

You can build an Uber or Facebook Clone and fit within the 1mb limit.

You can also increase the size limit by referring your friends.

The 1mb size applies to the JAR sent to the server, this is around 6kb for a barebones application. All of our demos and many 3rd party apps in the stores fall under this limit which is generally a good approach.

It doesn't limit the size of the final application or 3rd party libraries used which means you can still use a large library like Google Maps without hitting this limit. If you use a very heavy theme or many images (within the app JAR not downloaded dynamically) you will hit this limit.

There is a bit of an overview here on how to shrink the JAR overhead.
