Affiliation: UIUC

Provider: Lynda.com

Type: Streaming Resource

Description: Once you've created an Android app, you can distribute it in multiple ways, but the primary channel is through the Google Play Store. In this course, updated for 2015, David Gassner shows you how to publish your app on Google Play and provides a brief overview of the alternatives offered by Amazon and other vendors. The process starts with packaging the app for distribution, sideloading an application package (APK) file on your own devices for testing, and implementing some basic protections. Then you'll learn to publish your app on Google Play, where you'll set pricing and track app usage. The final chapter contains information for developers who are also interested in distributing apps through Amazon.
