Cannot create an Android app

by RobertRioja Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:50 pm

Can the free version of SpiderBasic create Android apps? Every time I try to do it, it produces an apk. But when I try to install it, I get an error message that says "App not installed. The package appears to be corrupt."

Is there anything special I have to do to turn my program (which runs under Windows) into an Android app?

Thanks,
Robert

Have you tried using Debugger already? Otherwise you'll have to sign your app...

How do I sign the apk? I just want to run it on my Android phone. Not interested in Playstore. I use the "Create App..." item from the Compiler pull-down menu. Then I go to the Android tab. I leave the "IAP key" field blank because I don't know what it does, and the documentation does not even mention it. It then produces an apk which I transfer to my phone. But when I try to install it, I get the "App not installed. The package appears to be corrupt." message.

Any help would be appreciated.

first be aware than if you have "enabled the debugger" no signing is neccessary .
This a good way to check if everything else, than signing, is ok and app works

then try googling, this method/post was what i have use succesfully in the pasr
