Apple iOS has delta updates for a file. It's a blessing saving time and bandwidth.

"We noticed a couple days ago that the new "delta" smart app updates had been enabled when updating The Dark Knight Rises, which would have been a 1.8GB download under the old system. However, this time around the update was just 20MB or so."
WOW now this is good news!

Nice to hear, and I'll try it out with Google Maps and IMDB in a bit. I hope that this feature is available for all/most Android devices and not just 4.0 and above.

I remember from Google IO they had said it would be supported for devices with 2.3 and above

Already seen these delta updates.. Examples some apps which are 8mb etc only download like 1mb and then start installing... Great feature and more than just a little bump into say...
