2.1. Introduction

In Chapters 3–18, we’ll develop a wide variety of Android apps. Once you’ve developed and tested your own apps—both in the emulator and on Android devices—the next step is to submit them to Android Market—or other app marketplaces—for distribution. In this chapter, we’ll discuss the User Interface Guidelines and Best Practices to follow when designing apps, and provide characteristics of great apps. You’ll learn how to register for Android Market and set up a Google Checkout account so that you can sell apps. You’ll learn how to prepare your apps for publication and how to upload them to Android Market. We’ll discuss some considerations for making your apps free or selling them for a fee, and mention key resources for monetizing apps. We’ll provide resources for marketing your apps, and mention other popular app platforms to which you may want to port your Android apps. And, we’ll point you to online Android developer documentation for additional information.
