Upload Android Apps Free
There are many independent Android app developers out there who design, code and test the apps they have been working on only to find out that Google charge a $25 to sign up as a developer and publish to Google Play, previously known as Android Market.
There are also independent developers out there who haven't relied upon pure development but have chosen to use free third party app building services and are also looking to publish their app for free.
What many of them don't realize is that Google Play is most certainly not the only Android Market and not all of them charge a fee.
An excellent alternative market which was actually in existence before Google Play/Android Market is French Android App Market, SlideMe. Anyone can sign up at SlideMe as a developer and can upload their Android apps for free.
Although you must register as a developer first, there are no fees charged, you can sell your app for a price if you so wish and you can also display your own advertising in your apps and even sign up to SlideMe's own earning program.
Alternatively, by using Appsgeyser's service to build your .apk file in the first place your app will automatically be hosted on Appgeyser's own network although this is nowhere near as popular as Google Play or SlideMe markets.
However, Appsgeyser does provide an incredibly easy to use option for independent developers who know very little about coding but whereas you could easily attain a few thousand downloads on Google Play or SlideMe it's highly unlikely that your apps will attract the same amount of attention on networks like Appsgeyser.
The next option is to sign up with Amazon App Market as an Android developer to upload your apps. However, this is only currently free for the first year after which an annual $99 fee is applicable. Amazon's apps are also screened for quality before being published but there are certain advantages such as the 'customers also purchased' feature.
Finally, the best way to upload and publish your Android apps for free is via Upload.com. In fact, you can upload PC/Mac software, eBooks and more.
Upload.com is operated by CNET who own the sister site Download.com and have a very large distribution network. Any products you upload are automatically added to the network and will appear on Download.com.
