Process of publish an application in the android market (Google-Play).
Android Market now called Google Play is a digital-distribution multimedia-content service from Google which includes an online store for music, movies, books, and Android applications and games, as well as a cloud media player.
For publishing the application in the market we need to check the following points:
· Getting application ready
a. Request necessary android permission
b. Specify a name and icon
c. Configure version manifest data
d. Set compatibility option
e. Cleanup file and removing logging
f. Sign in and zip align the application
· Becoming a market publisher
a. Register as a publisher and setup your profile
b. Read and agree to the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement.
c. Pay a registration fee of $25 USD via Google Checkout.
To publish applications on the Android Market, you must be a registered developer. Head over to http://market.android.com/publish and sign in with your Google account. Next, fill out all the required information along with your real phone number, which Google will use to contact you in the event of an emergency or a problem with any of your Android applications. If you can’t decide on a developer name, don’t worry. Just use your real name for now – you can always change that later via your profile page.
You should read the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement carefully, as you are required to accept the terms and you will be legally bound to them upon paying the registration fee.
Click the Google Checkout button and pay the one-time registration fee and you’re done!
· Uploading an applicationLogin to your publisher account and click “Upload an Application”. Fill in all of the form data and include screenshots if you can and provide a precise, short and well-formatted description. You can also choose whether or not you want to release it as a free or paid app – though you need to be a registered Google Checkout Merchant to do the latter and it’s currently only available in a handful of countries. Lastly, click “Publish.”
