2. Space for apps

The TomTom iPhone app launched in the last 24 hours, and the smallest version 
of the it I could find (The UK & Ireland version) weighed in a 241MB, which, if 
it were an Android app, simply would not install on any current device, and 
that to me is a problem that needs solving.

apps with different packages just to achieve something the Apple App Store does 

- What happens if the user doesn't have enough SD card space to download the 
map? (There no way to check this prior to purchase and install).

I'm sure we're all familiar with the technical reasons why apps on SD cards

users are going to take the view that Android is an inferior alternative to the
