Your job isn’t done once your Android app has been developed. You still need to submit it to the Google Play Store.  Listing your app on the Google Play Store requires you to register as a developer with the different providers. Here we explain how to submit your app to the Google Play Store.

How to Submit your App to the Play Store

Google is a little easier than Apple. All you will need is a Google account. Most people have a Google account because they have Gmail, YouTube or any of the other Google functions.

You then need to use your Google Account to sign up to a Google Play Developer account here at play.google.com.

You then have to simply pay the $25 fee and your account will be activated.

Now that you have your accounts, you will be able to publish your app. You’ll need a developer to build your app packages and put them onto the stores. The app stores need you to add data descriptions and screenshots prior to uploading.

Each app store again is different, and below outlines the maximum character allowances:

App Store (character count):       

Name 30
Subtitle 30
Description 4000
Promotional Text 170

Google Play (character count):

Title 50
Short Description 80
Full Description 4000

It is always better to use the maximum amount of characters.

As a final note! It’s really important to remember to follow the app publishing guidelines. These are available on the internet and you will need to make sure your app meets the requirements otherwise your app will get rejected. You can read the guidelines below:

If you plan to launch your app to the Apple App Store as well, make sure you read our blog on submitting your app to the Apple Store.
