Publishing to Google Play

Publishing an app to Google Play is considerably easier than uploading to Apple. The process can be done within around 30 minutes.

The first step in publishing is to register for Google Play at the Google Play publisher site. Registration will take a couple of minutes and your account will be live instantly.

You will need :

  • APK file sent to you by the WordApp team.
  • The title for your app (max 30 characters).
  • A description of your app (max 4000 characters).
  • High-res icon, 512 x 512 32-bit PNG (with alpha).
  • At least 2 screenshots are required overall (Max 8 screenshots per type), JPEG or 24-bit PNG (no alpha). Min length for any side: 320px. Max length for any side: 3840px. (You can upload a maximum of 8 screenshots per type. Types include "Phone", "7-inch tablet" and "10-inch tablet".)

There several steps but most of them are quite simple.

  1. Log in to the control panel at
  2. Press the + button to create a new app.
  3. You will be asked to create listing or upload the APK file (I generally start by the listing).
  4. You will then be asked for the App name, description, screenshots, price and to answer various questions.
  5. You can then upload the APK.
  6. Submit for review.

If you don't have the time or just don't want to upload your own app. We have a small team of developer who will do it for you for $25 (both platforms included and a one-off payment).

The review process will take a couple of hours (max) and will show on all the Google Play stores worldwide within a day (in my experience).
