When earlier this year Google announced at its I/O developer conference they will turn on delta updates for Android 2.3 and higher devices, not many people were aware about it and not that many geeks knew when it would happen. The update is live starting last night or this morning.
If you still don’t get what I am talking about, then I have to say with these smart updates users will have to download only those parts of an update that have been changed. So users won’t have to download the complete updated app or game. For example, the update of the popular ezPDF Reader usually is 6.3MB in size, but now it is under 3MB, or the update of Instagram was 13MB, though after those smart updates it weighs only 3MB.
As you see these smart updates would only be about a third of the size of a full update, which is the best solution to save users bandwidth and to extend battery life.
