A recent report from mobile app statistics clearinghouse App Annie revealed that Japan is now the largest app market in the world, outpacing the United States. Combined sales generated from sales in Google Play and the Apple Store beat out the U.S.; in addition, their findings show that users are spending three times as much money on apps as South Korean app buyers.
If you’re a developer making apps, then you probably already know about Google Play, an Android app store where hundreds of thousands of apps are curated and discovered by users all over the world. As a developer at Google Play, getting users to discover, install, and engage with your app is the main goal in mind.
Starting September, 2012, Google Play has added Multiple APK support for x86 CPU architecture. This feature allows you to publish different APKs for your application that are each targeted to x86 CPU architecture. The APK is a complete and independent version of your application, but it shares the same application listing on Google Play and must share the same package name and be signed with the same release key. This feature is useful for cases in which your application cannot reach all desired devices with a single APK such as an App developed using Androind NDK.
