You Will Need:
-A completed Android application project in Eclipse or an already created “.apk” file
-An Internet connection
-A credit/debit card to pay for Google Developer license
-At least two screenshots of the app, stored on your computer
Step 1: Opening Eclipse
*Note: If you are not using eclipse or you have already exported an “.apk” file, you may skip to Step: 10.
Step 2: Selecting "Export"
An “Export” dialog box should then appear.
Step 3: Selecting Export Type
A dialog box labeled “Export Android Application” will then appear in place of the old.
Step 4: Checking for Errors
*Note: If there are errors, you need to fix them and start the exporting process over.
Click “Next,” if no errors are present.
Step 5: Entering a Keystore
If you have previously created a keystore, then you may enter the name and password and skip to Step: 8.
If you have not created a keystore in the past, you will do so now by selecting the radio button labeled “create new keystore.”
Step 6: Creating a New Keystore
A good place to store the keystore, for future use, would be the same directory that your project files are in. Type in a name that you will remember and select “save.”
Step 7: Choosing a Password
*Note: If you lose your keystore password, you will not be able to release an update for your app in the future.
Enter the password into the password field, followed by the confirmation box and select “Next.”
Step 8: Choosing an Alias
It is a good idea to use your name for the alias, because it is easy to remember and it will never be displayed. Again, choose a password you will remember. The number you choose to enter for the validity field, will be the number of years your app is available in the store.
Step 9: Choosing File Export Destination
A good place to store it is in the same directory that the project file exists.
Click “finish,” to export the file, and then exit eclipse.
It is now time to upload the newly created “.apk” file to the google store.
Step 10: Navigating to Google Developer Site
The proper site is shown in the green box in the figure attached to this step.
Step 11: Logging Into Google Developer Console
If you do not already have a google developer account, follow Google’s steps to create one, by clicking “Sign Up,” in the top-right of your screen. The last step in the process of creating a developer account is paying a one-time $25 developer fee using a credit or debit card.
Step 12: Adding a New Application
Step 13: Initiating APK Upload
Then, select the “Upload APK” button at the bottom.
The console will then take you to the new homepage for your app.
Step 14: Initiating APK Upload (part 2)
Step 15: Selecting & Uploading APK File
Upload progress is shown, and if the upload is successful, you will be taken back to the console.
Step 16: Adding a Description
Type an application description in the “description” text box. The description will appear in the Google Play store on the page for your app.
Step 17: Adding Screenshots
To upload screen-shots, scroll down and click one of the three “+ Add Screenshot” buttons corresponding to the type of device they were taken on.
A browse dialog box will open allowing you to select the screenshots from a directory on your computer.
Step 18: Adding a Store Listing Icon
The listing icon is the main picture that pops up at the top of the screen in the Google Play Store.
A browse dialog box will open allowing you to select the icon the same way Step 17 allowed you to select a screenshot.
Step 19: Filling in Details
Fill out the required fields as you wish and hit save. The “store listing” tab should now have a green check-mark next to it.
Step 20: Step 20:
Select "Save," at the bottom.
Step 21: Publishing the Application
