The Android ecosystem has matured enough that developers can publish Android app in the Google play store. However, before you publish an app on the Google play store, there are a few guidelines you need to follow. First, you need to sign up for the Google development program (PRP). Google provides the application developer tools and documentation. You also need to register for the Google apps trial with your Google account. This is an essential step before publishing your first app on the Google play store.
You need to create a developer account. This is a free service provided by Google that lets you submit your website and apps to the Android app store. After creating a developer account, you can easily publish android apps in the Google store. To do so, you have two options – signing in to the google play app developer console or uploading your project using the Android SDK. Once you uploaded your project, you have to wait for approval.
Before publishing an app on Google play, you need to prepare two things: first, a Keystore file containing your application code, and second, a jar with the Android SDK and a reference code. The Keystore file is a copy of your application that is stored in an external database. This ensures no alteration will be made to your original application code. A jar contains the Android tools and the native script sidekick. The jar is used for launching your application, while the SDK is used for building your app.
After preparing the Keystore and jars, it is now time to register your application on Google Play. The registration process is easy. Just go to the play dashboard and sign up for an account. The method of signing up varies from one platform to another. For Windows users, you need to click Start, then Run, and type “appliance Signing-In.”
Google offers two different sets of content policies. If you are developing mobile apps, you need to follow the app guidelines for apps published in the play. However, if your main goal is to write android applications for web-based clients, you need to create your own policy. To determine the set of rules applicable to your application, refer to Google documentation. Consult the documentation for the particular set of rules that will be applied to your specific application.
It is important to note that, after submitting your application to Google play, you will receive an automated notification from Google offering to update your application. Once you accept the update, your app will become compliant with the latest guidelines. Google provides various methods for opting-in to their app database. If you are using the beta version of Android apps, you will be able to opt-in to the beta version by going through the on-play feed.
