Publishing App Inventor in the Market

The cat is out of the bag. There’s  a primer out on how to publish an App Inventor app in the Android market, via It takes some work using the Java SDK and some command-line tools but it doesn’t look to awful.

The cat being out of the bag is big news and could help with the next step– one-click publishing directly from App Inventor.

  5. All – Regarding publishing to the Market, FYI, there is a really nice desktop tool that can take an app created with App Inventor and package it for Google Android Market.
