    hey Mirnon,

    The max file sizes for apps that can be submitted by publishers to Ovi Store are:

    - Java Applications: 2 MB (.jar+.jad)
    - Symbian Applications: 2 MB (.sis, .sisx)
    - Flash Lite Applications: 2 MB (.sis, .sisx, .nfl)
    - WRT Widgets: 2 MB (.wgz)


    Best,

    Is this a new restriction, or maybe a soft restriction? We have SIS files over 2MB (2.1M, 2.3M, 2.4M) in the OVI store currently.

    Thanks,
    Pat

    Re: Max size of app in Ovi

    2 MB is the recommendation for max file sizes for applications because apps are downloaded OTA by end-users on their handsets. So if you're app is above 2 MB it won't be rejected.

    Some Ovi Store consumers have Nokia devices that may not have WiFi so they're relying on their carrier network to pull down the apps. On the other hand some of the S60 devices that support Ovi Store have WiFi support so it's possible for those users to download larger file sizes. So in theory to reach more Ovi Store consumers you should try to keep the file size under or around 2 MB.

    Any additional questions post them here.

    So, those are the recommended max sizes, but not actual limitations.

    What're the max sizes that will be blocked by policy (if such a policy is in place)?

    What're the max sizes technically possible (system limitations, if any)?

    Thumbs down Re: Max size of app in Ovi

    It's quit often for that a game application size is over 2MB if that game is made for QHD screen and encloses with some good sound files. Please check iphone apps. Outstanding game is around 5~10 MB.
    2MB is too low to even be a recommended size for game apps. If OTA is concerned, Nokia should find a way to allow user to buy/sync from PC suite.

    hi mobileperry,
    what about applications which need some heavy data (e.g. 300MB) linked?
    1) it is not possible to create a 300Mb SiS file
    2) how can this data be added to the SiS application in the OVI store?
    thanx,
    gh
