1.Use ProGaurd.
2.Remove any debug info you have in the app ( statements such as Log.i()). ...
3.Use recommended media formats. ...
4.Compress images using OptiPNG or PNGCrush.
5.Use 9patch to scale images.

Hi ,
Images play a big role in increasing app sizes , try to use minumal images in app , if used use reduced sizes. While placing top header in app or in slider design try to use colour code instead of images

Hi,

I would recommend that you compress the .jpg files as much as possible, this should greatly reduce the size of your .apk file. A tool such as Paint.NET which is free should help you do this. It has great resizing options.
