do i pay for app download costs

If we put a mobile app in apple or google stores, do I have to pay the download fees for those downloads?  Basically, do we store the app or does apple/google store them?

If the music is packaged with the app then it is part of the app.
Are they separate files that need to be downloaded?

The app will be stored on whatever store you put it on.
You will upload the app to the store and they will distribute it.

Right, but do I have to pay for any download costs of that?  For example our app comes with three audio files.  Do I put those audio files with the app store or do I have to host them and pay for their download?

No you don't pay anything but if someone buys your app then the store will take a percentage of the sale.

Sorry to be redundant, but I need to be clear on this.  I have someone telling me that if my app has music packaged with it, that we will have to store that music in AWS and pay for the download costs of it.  Is that incorrect?

FYI, the music is not streaming, it is downloaded with the app and stays with it.

Yes, the app downloads, then they download the music while they go through the orientation.

It was laid out that way to avoid a big download time.

I think better to package the music with the app.
