Sometimes, getting the Apps in the stores can be a little tricky. Let us show you how to get this Done in just a few minutes (Y).
For Starters: Get Ready to Publish
The publishing process in Google Play can be a lot quicker if you have all of the store listing content complete and available before you start. So when you're ready to publish your app, here are the items you should have available:
- Your final Andromo application file (APK) to be uploaded. It must be under 50MB in size to be accepted.
- The title for your app (max 30 characters).
- A description of your app (max 4000 characters).
- High-res icon, 512 x 512 32-bit PNG (with alpha).
At least 2 screenshots are required overall (Max 8 screenshots per type), JPEG or 24-bit PNG (no alpha). Min length for any side: 320px. Max length for any side: 3840px. (You can upload a maximum of 8 screenshots per type. Types include "Phone", "7-inch tablet" and "10-inch tablet".)
- Optional items that can be updated later include:
- Optional promo text (80 characters) and promo graphic. Promo graphic needs to be 180w x 120 h JPG or 24-bit PNG (no alpha).
- Screenshots: Only 2 are required, but you can upload a maximum of 8 screenshots per type. Types include "Phone", "7-inch tablet" and "10-inch tablet".
- Feature graphic: 1024w x 500h JPG or 24-bit PNG (no alpha).

Adding the APK I have
Once you've registered, you can log in to your Google Play Developer account and begin publishing your application via the "CREATE APPLICATION" button.
The first thing you'll see is a dialog asking for the default language and the title of your app. You've then presented two options "Upload APK" and "Prepare Store Listing". The one you start with is up to you, but for this article, we'll assume you'll choose the upload first.
To set the APK click on App releases under the Release Management tab on your left, then click on MANAGE PRODUCTION.
Now, click on CREATE RELEASE
Then UPLOAD APK, we are almost there!
Now just drag & drop the APK file, and that´s it from your side, now is Google Play turn to accept your APK.
Creation of the Store Listing
The Store Listing controls what your end users will see when they find your application in Google Play.
If you've entered all of the required information, you'll see a checkmark listed beside the "Store Listing" along the left-hand side of the screen. The next step is to complete the "Pricing & Distribution" details.
NOTE: If you are uploading the Delivery (Drivers) App. On the description of the App, be sure to add: Disclaimer"Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life."
Pricing & Distribution
In this section, you define the pricing details for your app (free or paid), where you want it available, and consent options. When you're finished, save your changes and if you've entered all of the required information, it will show a checkmark next to "Pricing & Distribution" along the left-hand side.
Let´s Publish that APKIf you've submitted all of the required information, a "Publish this app" button will be enabled on the page. Your application should appear in the store usually after a few hours (but could take longer).
Always Glad to Help You :)
