Please be aware your app MUST be under 50MB as that is the maximum app size allowed on Google Play. Whilst Google have recently announced increasing the limit this requires the app to download additional data after installation. If you require this facility we can add it to your app at our standard consulting rates.
Note: There is no review process for Android apps. Within an hour or so of submitting an app, it will be live and available for download. This is also true of updates.
When you are ready to publish we'll be asking you for a few details about your app:
The App name as it will appear in on the Android Market. Max 30 characters.
My Amazing App
The App name as it will appear under the icon. The recommended maximum is 12 characters.
A detailed description of the app itself, no longer than 4,000 characters and no less than 10 characters.
Keep the following in mind when writing the description:
IMPORTANT: This description should only be used to describe the actual features and functionality of your application.
From the Vision 2011 app:
"Stay ahead of the creative curve and grow your creative business.
The name of the person or entity that owns the exclusive rights to the app you are adding. Do not include a copyright symbol.

We'll also need some images from you:
This is the image used for the app's icon, as displayed on the Android home screen.
All icons should be .png with transparency.
Note: Unlike the iPhone, where icons are displayed without transparency and with forced rounded corners, Android icons can be transparent and are displayed as-is. You may want to consider adding a shadow or border around your image so that it is visible when shown over both light and dark backgrounds. For more guidelines, check out Google's official guide to creating app icons.
Please provide icon files with the following sizes and with the filenames as follows:
|512 x 512||AppIconLarge.png|
|72 x 72||AppIcon72.png||
|48 x 48||AppIcon48.png|
|36 x 36||AppIcon36.png|
The launch image is the image displayed while your app is loading.
All launch images should be in the .png format, without transparency.
Launch Images for Portrait Apps
Please provide the following image:
|320 x 480||Default.png|
Launch Images for Landscape Apps
Please provide the following images

Ensure the images are exactly 320 x 480 pixels (or 480 x 320 for landscape apps)
