After entering RSS feed click ‘Next’
In next page you can customize your app. Here you can add details about you application category,small description about the application, your website address,Twitter user name etc.
Looks of the application can also be customized. Customization is very basic you can select application icon and application background image. Unfortunately you can not upload your own icon or custom background image. There are some default icons and backgrounds available, you have to select one from them.
After entering all details hit ‘Finish’ to create Android Application.
Now you will be able to download the .apk file of the application. You can distribute that .apk file to share the app. The Android app can also be downloaded using QR code. If you own an Android mobile then you can test the app yourself before distributing the app.
Now you can either submit the app to Android Market (after paying $25 developer fee) or distribute using .apk file/QR code.
