    Admob causing data increase in my game

    Hey guys, it seems like admob still has the bug that keeps increasing the data storage making the app file bigger. My app size jumped from 11.26mb to 16mb, each time i open the app. I have a standard size ad show up at the bottom of the screen whenever you open the app. Has this been looked at?

    This is after opening the app for the first time, look at the data increase.

    The more i open the app the bigger the data increases.

    Hi,

    i have receive several PM about this subject; admob , chartboost and leadbolt increase the size of your application, this is totally normal, why?, because the advertisement cache is saved in the devices, i have seen in some device even 30MB so far but other have mention to me 100MB, not that cache you post in your game with only 20KB.

    part of those 3 and something MB, is a file that represent the fusion application in order to gain speed and prepare for expansion. again, totally normal.
    Regards,

    Thanks for the response.

    I have played other games and have used other apps that use admob and I've never seen the data increase as much as in my game. For example, Swing Copters uses admob, and it slowly increases the data 100kb after everytime i open the app. My game, everytime i open the app it increases by a lot.

    maybe because they are saving the cache in some other place, look for it inside your external storage/android directory and tell me if you see inside it

    By the way, is there any other alternative to admob and Chartboost? Seems like I can't use admob anymore and I'm just left with Chartboost. Would love to use other ad services.

    There's also LeadBolt you can check out. LeadBolt is quite competitive.
