Once you've created an Android app, you can distribute it in multiple ways, but the primary channel is the Google Play store. In this course, David Gassner shows you how to prepare, package, and publish your Android app on Google Play, and provides a brief overview of the alternatives offered by Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The first step is to prepare the app for distribution, including cleaning up code, adding licensing and encryption, and exporting an application package (APK) file. The course then shows how to register as an Android developer, upload your app, set pricing, and publish the app. You'll also learn how to track app usage, including usage statistics, revenue, and crash reporting. David also includes a chapter on using Amazon's developer portal to distribute your app through the Amazon Appstore.
My name is David Gassner, and this is Distributing Android Apps. In this course, I'll start with an overview of the most popular Android app distribution channels, including Google Play, Amazon, and the Nook store. I'll then describe how to prepare an app for distribution. I'll show you how to obscure and compress your code with ProGuard, and how to apply licensing and encryption techniques.
I'll then describe how to upload your app to Google Play and to Amazon, how to find out how your app is doing, and tell you about some other potential distribution channels. If you're an Android developer, I hope this course helps you get your apps to the users you want to serve.
