It was previously 20MB

Windows Phone 7 and 8 users can now download files up to 50MB, which is more than double the previous cap.

Microsoft had previously implemented a data cap of 20MB for over-the-air downloads of games and apps on a cellular connection. This applied to both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 users.

However, it looks like the company quietly increased that cap to 50MB. It's unclear when this happened exactly, but those with Windows Phone 7 or 8 can now download larger files over their cellular network.

Last month, Google said it wouldn't develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 because of a lack of demand. More specifically, it won't develop Gmail or Drive dedicated apps.

I think these are just the updates/apps that say "must connect to wifi to download". If that's the case, I imagine it's to prevent people from chewing up their monthly data usage.

Would prefer a "This file is X MB - are you sure you want to download over the air?" or something like that. I've found a few times I'm in a location where I can't get to wifi and will just download it, and other times where I'm near free wifi and would prefer to use it.
