Reduce Android App APK With These Top 7 Approaches!
You might already know that the APK analyzer is available in an Android studio that highlights the aspect that is larger and adding to increased size. Now here’s an instance, in which an app called Anti-Theft screen lock APK is shared in the below image: As in the image you can see the raw size of the app is 3.1MB, but after applying the analyzer it has been compressed to 2.5MB roughly. In the mentioned screenshot, you can see three components contributing to the large size of the app, which includes:
- Res- This folder actually has all the files under the name res, which basically contain images, raw files, menu files, and icons.
- Classes.dex- This file contains all the byte codes of your java code that will run on your DMV or ART.
- Resources.arsc- This file holds all the valuable resources, containing all the data that you have under different value folders.
