Apps built with QtCreator can be uploaded to the Google Play Store just like any other app created with Android Studio. To do so, we need to produce a signed version of the APK package and upload it to the Google Developer Console.

To sign the package we first need to create a key store in the “Build Android APK” section of the “Project” tab of Qt Creator. Then we can enable the check “Sign Package” and publish a “Release” version (not the default “Debug” version) of the apk on https://play.google.com/apps/publish.

An example of such a published app is “Trackz”, a GPS tracking and geo-caching app:
