Hi everybody
Here's my (from AndroidWorld.it) guide to how to publish an app created with App Inventor in the Market:
http://www.androidworld.it/2010/10/0...-market-23498/

If you have any correction (also for my bad english!) let me know

I always get this error:

C:\APK Compiler>apktool b Launcher.apk
Exception in thread "main" brut.androlib.AndrolibException: brut.directory.PathN
otExist: apktool.yml
at brut.androlib.Androlib.readMetaFile(Unknown Source)

at brut.apktool.Main.main(Unknown Source)
Caused by: brut.directory.PathNotExist: apktool.yml
at brut.directory.AbstractDirectory.getFileInput(Unkn own Source)
... 5 more

Is there anyway some of the geniuses here can get this to be a little simpler? For some reason I cant even get apktool to run. I hate windows.

Do you update the app a lot? Cause if not, I can just modify your apk so you can publish it in the Market.

Interesting guide, exciting idea.
For some reason I cannot get past step 1, I get a list of java.io errors....
I'm hoping the thread there or google will cover some troubleshooting for that soon.
-Update_
Ok that was silly, I used a bad target directory, read only.
On to the next steps.

Smile Could you lend me a hand with my apk marketplace upload?
I have a couple of really good app inventor apps that I created. I tried the tutorial many times posted above with no luck. I read here that you could just modify the apk to publish? If you can help me with this it would be a tremendous help. I'll send you my email if you can help me out. Thanks
