Tips and Tricks for Uploading Apps to Google Market
The Google Market Developer Console is primary means to get your Android apps onto the marketplace. But using it sometimes require a bit of work-around and ingenuity. This thread documents of tips and tricks learned from using the Google Market Developer Console.
1. When you upload a new application to the developer console. Some times, the "Screenshots" section doesn't show the "Browse..." button, the "Upload" button, nor the text field. At least this happends on Firefox. You can refresh the page to make these critical elements visible.
2. The Android Market Developer Console requires that either you do not upload any screen shots, or you upload two of them. If your application has only one screen shot, you can upload that one screen shot into both slots.
3. If you upload a paid app, and then later change it to "Free", you cannot change it back to paid again. Be careful!
4. The web site field can direct traffic to your main site or to the app's web page. Consider whether you want customers to learn about the specific app you are uploading or about your entity.
5. The "Delete" button only works for unpublished version of your app. Once you published your app or a particular version of it, you cannot delete it from the Market. However, you can still "unpublish" it. The "Delete" button is only handy when you uploaded a new version, then you realized you goofed and want to remove that new version before publishing it.
6. There is now a change to the Market where you must upload at least two screen shots. If you don't want to provide any screen shots at all, you can at least upload blank screen shots into both slots. Attached below is a blank screen shot image for your convenience.
