This course describes how to distribute finished apps through the Google Play store and other distribution channels. The primary focus of the course is on how to prepare an app and then how to distribute it through Google Play, but there are many channels for distributing Android apps.
- [Instructor] This course is the final course in a series on building Android apps for phones and tablets. The course is designed for developers who will be working with Android Studio and the latest version of the Android SDK. The primary focus of the course is distributing apps through the Google Play store, but I also cover a little bit of information about working with Amazon and some other distribution channels. This is the last course in the series. In the course, I assume that you've already learned the basics of how to build an Android app.
It's best if you can watch other courses in the series first but if those courses aren't available yet, you can instead go back to the previous version of the course: Android App Development Essential Training, where all of the content to get you started with building Android apps is in a single set of videos. As I've described in other courses in this series, Android developers need a number of different skills to be successful building Android apps. You'll be programming in Java, so to learn more about that language, you can watch Java Essential Training and Java Advanced Training, and you'll be working in Android Studio, Google's IDE for Android developers and there's an entire dedicated course on that subject, Android Studio Essential Training.
These courses and more can help you continue to build your Android development skills and get better as an Android developer.
