    Just wanted an ask to a question that is probably obvious to some: Is the number to the right of the file size (in the app preview) the number of bytes in the app? I assume it is since it's so large. I just wanted verification since the units are not labeled.

    Thanks for the reply sketch42. The reason I thought it was in bytes and not mb is because if it were in mb, then the apps would all be over a 1g in size. I don't know much about app development, but I think apps are usually a couple thousand mb at the very most. I've downloaded PC apps that are a couple of hundred kilobytes.

    Maybe you're talking about a different number then.

    On my Pre it clearly signifies the size with an M.

    Sorry about the miscommunication. The number to which I was referring to is on the precentral.net website (the desktop version). Clicking on an app in the app gallery to view a description of the app takes you to a separate page. You then scroll down to "Download Options" and you see this, in part (a random example):

    Download Options
    Please Register or Login to download this file!
    Description
    Total downloads:
    3515
    Current Install Base:

    Current Version:
    2.2.0
    Size:
    13533184
    Minimum OS:
    webOS 1.4.5

    The number listed under "Size" is the number I am talking about. My contention is that this app is about 13mb (13 million bytes). What do you guys think?
