    I'm unable to get my app to install separately from Xcode. I think the reason is that it is over 20 mb because when I remove some of the sprite sheets and the size goes below 20 mb it installs fine. Anyone have experience with this problem? If I have to whittle this app down below 20mb it will be a shadow of what was intended, I praying that will not be the case! Maz

    I should say, this game is VERY sprite heavy. 90% of the total size is sprites.

    Are you trying to install it over the cellular (3G) network? 20MB is the limit unless you are on a wi-fi connection.

    Compressed the art to 15mb, still not working, so that wasn't it. Ugh.

    What error are you getting from XCode and/or in your device logs?

    can you be able to split it up into individual files of a few k and have it install and then assemble on the device?
