I've just compiled my game for Android; so I figured out that the size of the .apk Corona generated is too big (9MB) for such a simple game.
I decided, then, to extract this apk with apktool to see what files we have inside this apk. I found a lot of files I think is related to the engine itself. Besides these kind of files, which I guess we cannot simply remove, I also found some gui-related assets that are never used.
Given that, I thought: why not to remove these so that I can reduce this apk size?
Turns out that things are not that simple. It's known that some engines, like Unity, don't allow us to do things like that; they consider it as some kind of hacking. I know this because I saw it written somewhere on the internet. I've searched for this type of information about Corona, but I didn't find anything. I could read the license, but I'm not the kind of guy who understands it .
So, is it allowed to do so with Corona-generated apk? Or is it prohibited by Corona's license?
