Sign and ZIP your application

  • One of very important distribution requirements is that Android applications must be digitally signed with a certificate that the developer holds. This is used to ensure the authenticity of an application, so itís important that you pick a strong password for your private key and ensure that you keep it safe.

  • So to start off, youíll need a private key in order to sign your final APK file, as the debug key that IDEs use sign your compiled apps by default canít be used.

  • If youíre using Eclipse, you can use the Export Wizard, a friendly GUI-based tool. Even if you use a different IDE, it might prove to save a lot of time if you use Eclipse for exporting your application, unless of course your IDE offers the same functionality.

  • Select the project and select File > Export.
