Code signing management

When you build an Android app and want to public on Google Play, you need to digitally sign your app. To sign your app, you need your keystore file and alias/password.
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 of building app file.
You can ensure security when choosing the option to let Starion manage it for you. All your confidential data is encoded so it can't be seen by anyone even the developers of Starion.

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.

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.
