Tip to reduce the size of Phonegap apps


#1

Hi.
I found this very good web site:


by which i could reduce online, in a blink, the size of all the png pictures in my folder, bringing in this way the app size from 25MB to about 5MB.
I hope it can help someone.

When using pictures in my apps I convert them to jpg and make them as small as possible to reduce their size. However, in one app that used hundreds of images as small icons, the time for “Updating…” was excessive because of the numbers. So I converted all images to Base64 and concatinated them into a single text file. All references to the images were removed from the manifest and replaced with the one file. The speed of updating was reduced many times.
