I feel like lately, many of my posts are admonishments to put your app on Google Play.
Let me explain a few things. First, AppsGeyser allows you to distribute your app to anyone who has the correct landing page address without adding your app to any market. That means that if you make an app for your girlfriend to propose to her, you don’t need to put it in Google Play for her to be able to download it.
Second, you can’t sell apps directly from AppsGeyser; you can only sell apps from a market such as Google Play.
Third, the AppsGeyser service is 100% free. Google, however, charges a one-time developer’s fee of $25. If you are hoping to make money from your apps, this is an unavoidable investment.
Now you want to know HOW to put your app on Google Play. The first part of putting your app on Google Play is opening a developer’s account.
- Go to: https://play.google.com/apps/publish
- Sign in with your Google Email (Gmail) address and password. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to create a Google account at this point. Once you’ve signed in, you’ll need to create a developer account.
- Choose a developer name, the email address you want used to contact you, the URL of your main site if you have one, and your phone number. You’ll probably want to receive email updates.
- Read and agree to the Developer Distribution Agreement.
- Pay the Google Developer registration ($25). You’ll need to enter credit card information.
Congratulations! You are now a Google Developer! Next week, we’ll explain how to put apps into those developer accounts.
