After installing Android SDK you need to enable Accelerator for having Fast emulator

To publish Xamarin Project on Google play:

https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/deployment,_testing,_and_metrics/publishing_an_application/

You dont need to do all above steps mentioned in xamarin website. (e.g create a google play account and upload it via browser)

Choose release instead of Release ( Goole play doesnt allow Debugging)

RightClick on Publish and then click on Archive.

After Archiving click on Distribute there you have to define a signing identity (Adhoc) then you can click on Save As and export the project.


Then you have to zipalign the apk file:
go to android skd folder

C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Local\Xamarin\MonoForAndroid\AndroidSDK

and jumped into “android-sdk\build-tools\” and for ease, pasted my .APK here.

open a terminal and navigated to the build tools folder, and typed in the followng command

zipalign.exe -f -v 4 mono.samples.helloworld-Signed.apk helloworld.apk
