Deploying Mobile Applications Android

Developers need to determine what methods they use to distribute applications. With Android, you have a number of options. You can market applications yourself and leverage third-party marketplaces such as the Android Market. Consolidated mobile marketplaces, such as Handango, also have Android distribution channels of which you can take advantage.

Determining Target Markets

Developers must take into account any requirements imposed by third parties offering application distribution mechanisms. Specific distributers might impose rules for what types of applications they distribute on your behalf. They might impose quality requirements such as testing certifications (although there are none specific to Android applications at the time this book went to print) and accompanying technical support, and documentation and adherence to common user interface workflow standards (that is, the Back button should behave like this) and performance metrics for responsive applications. Distributers might also impose content restrictions such as barring objectionable content.
