    Hi,

    I had generated and submitted to the three app stores.

    these are the file sizes for my app
    iOS: 14MB
    Android: 800+KB
    Windows Phone: 700+ KB

    I will like to know how to reduce the file size for the iOS binary.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    The increased size of you iOS binary could be caused by the plugins you are using since they use different implementation for each platform.
    Do you use any custom plugins?

    Furthermore, iOS app uses more pictures for its splash screens so consider checking their size.

    The best way for us to investigate your binary size differences will be by reviewing you package. We will also need you to share the client (in-browser, Windows, VS extension) you are using.
    If you are willing to provide your binary please open a private ticket and attach it there.
    Thanks.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    Hi Zdravko, thanks for your reply!
    Yes, the large size was due to the splash screen.

    Any suggestion for a splash screen generator?

    In fact, it will be nice to have icon/splash screen/screenshot generator incorporated in appbuilder

    Hello Jon,

    I currently tested two online generators which seems decent.
    1. http://ios.hvims.com/ 
    2. http://ticons.fokkezb.nl/ 

    I am sure you can find additional on the web if you need so. Notice that you may need to adjust some resolutions using tools like Paint.net and Photoshop.

    Regarding to your integrated generator suggestion, I would ask you to add a feature request at our feedback portal where it could gather popularity among our community.
    Thanks.
