Play Store

Distributing your external app to the Play Store can make your apps easily accessible to Android users through the Play Store, increasing the trust and reputation of your app.

In Starion, we empower you with a feature so you can publish your Starion apps directly to the Google Play Store with a simplified distribution process.

Setting up

  • From Dashboard, open the settings of your external app

  • Find and click on "Play Store."

  • Enter the Package name of your app, which Google provides

  • Configure the management on Code signing setup

  • Click "Done" to save and start your first build

Code signing management

When you build an Android app and want to go public on Google Play, you need to sign your app digitally. You need your keystore file and alias/password to sign up for your app.

Choosing the type of code signing management is how you want to manage the keystore file and alias/password, as they are essential for future updates or new releases. You can let Starion manage it or choose to keep it secured and entered by you each time you build an app file.

You can ensure security when choosing the option to let Starion manage it for you. All your confidential data is encoded so no one, even Starion's developers, can see it.

Getting app build

From the page of app build management,

  • Click "Build App

  • Fill in the necessary information: the number of app versions and a description of what's new about this version.

  • Click "Start Build"

In the list of builds, you can follow the status of each. Once the status is "Completed", you can download the app file with the format (.apk) and (.aab) and upload it to the Play Store.

Once Google completes the app review, your app will be public and accessible to all Android users.
