    Hi all,

    I almost finished my app and now I want to sent it to someone else to have a look.
    How can I manually pick the .APK and share it with someone?

    Does B4A produce an .APK for distribution?

    This link deals with automatic distribution. Not my case.

    Regards,
    Fernando

    This is the path to the folder where the .APK file is stored,

    Your project folder\Objects

    you can upload to your google drive account and share it
    or same for ms one drive. ms one drive is a ms app from play store for android phone.
    its possible to install direct from cloud drive.
    normal distribution to all people on this world you need a google developer account, then you can upload it to play store.

    if you have open https://www.google.de/ in browser and you are logged in
    you will find drive in menü. at pc you can drag / drop in to drive web site.

    the user must also allow install from unkown origin in security settings.

    google drive is a installed default app at android phone.

    Yes - just send them the .apk & have them side load it.

    Some devices do not allow installation from apk file, even after you enable "from unknown sources". Foe these you can install the Apk Installer by Graphilos Studio (that one works, I don't know how others work).
