How do I... convert to APK & publish to Google Play?

  • Hello,

    I'm a Windows 7 n00b... trying desperately to publish my first Construct game on GooglePlay.

    I first tried QuickAppv1 - and this created "file-Quick_App.signed.apk" file... but when I tried to upload to my Developers Console, I got the following error:

    "Upload failed: You uploaded an APK that is not zip aligned. You will need to run a zip align tool on your APK and upload it again"

    I have tried following tutorials from Scirra without success. I fear they may be out of date

    so I found article: "How to Sign and Align your Android App (.apk)" https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/861/how-to-sign-and-align-your-android-app-apk but was getting: error in my cmd: 'keytool' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

    operable program or batch file.

    Any help would be sooooooo appreciated - Thanks,

    Stressed out!

  • I don't really know what a QuickAppv1 is, but if you use IntelXDK it will create a keystore for you and sign your app automatically. Also if you use CocoonIO it will sign your app automatically once you upload your keystore to their webapp.

  • About that command prompt error, add your JDK (Java SE Dev Kit) 'bin' path (eg. C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.x.x_xx/bin) in the PATH environment variable.

    Or just find the 'keytool' in your JDK location (inside the 'bin' folder), right-click it while pressing Shift, select 'Copy as Path', paste it into the command prompt and add the desired parameters.

    Or just use Cocoon.IO or Intel XDK like what said.
