Tom,

What's the actual executable size inside the app bundle? Drill into the app bundle and check that. You may be okay, even if the new binary (bundle) size is larger.

I too have downloading very large apps in the past, but I'm pretty sure these all have their resources external to the executable. That's why my suggestion was to pull out all possible embedded resources (images, sounds, etc.) and access them externally to the executable. Again, I'm not 100% sure this is the issue.

I can't seem to reclaim any of the memory from reducing from 2048 down to 1024 and that bother me. I was hoping to find out why that is happening. But I will have to rewrite this to reference the images to get this down below 80 I think.
