Post Reducing size of application

Please Login to Remove!

I am having text resource of 15MB in my application and application size is somewhat near to that. Device 8800 does not accept application above size 6MB. So, I am using GZIP compression for compressing resources. Now, the problem is time required for loading resource files is around 30-50 secs which is too much. So, I want solution that would keep my cod size below 6MB and which will take very less time in loading?

I would be very thankful if anybody can suggest for the problem.

Sure, get the text resource off of the device and put it server-side, and write some middleware to access the data via HTTP.

15MB is way too much for an 8800. I know this sounds crazy if you are coming from an iPhone with 2G, but that 8800 has maybe 64MB on it for everything: OS, programs, data, etc.

Thanks Dougsg38p.

I think other solution can be faster decompression algorithm. Anyone have idea about faster decompression for GZIP.
