Learn how to prepare, package, and publish your Android app on Google Play, and investigate other distribution platforms offered by Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
- [Voiceover] 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.
