thanks atrus, i'm looking into it.
so this 'signing' thing is just the new name for 'compiling your program'?
this will give me a program that others can run?
if so, what can they run it on, emulators? an android phone?
I saw this posted there as well:
Another tip: if you find this too much and aren't really doing any big releases, why not just use the debug signed apk? As I understand it, its expiration period is one year which should suit your alpha releases.
since this is just for friends, would this method suit me?
what even is a 'debug signed apk?
