How To Create And Log In To Google Play Developer
The first question that many developers have in mind when creating an app is to whether they must be registered as developer with Apple or Apple developer account and Google Play Developer console or not before publishing their apps for Apple and Android devices. Well, the short and simple answer for this is yes but, you're not required to have both only to publish on a single platform.
Let's say that you want to make an app for Apple devices, then it must be available in iTunes App Store for users of iOS to download them. Apple developer program has intentionally set this requirement to provide protection to their users and also, to regulate the type of content available for their devices. As for the developers, this is going to cost around 99 dollars annually for the license, which allows them to publish unlimited number of apps.
There are lots of other ways on how you could create an app for Android devices. Among the simplest methods is done through Google Play Store with a Google Developer App Account from

. With Google Play Developer Console, it enables developers to publish and distribute applications directly from their accounts to the users of any Android compatible devices.
Similar to iTunes, this allows Google to protect users from any contents that are harmful to the devices or inappropriate. The cost for a Google Developer Account and being able to publish unlimited number of applications on Google Play Store is only 25 dollars.
Now, if you are interested in this program, the first thing you have to do is of course, to register for a Google Play Developer account. In order to do that, you must visit

When done, pay the 25 dollars registration fee using Google payments and if you don't have one, you can set one easily during the process. You're going to get a notification in the email address you've used during the registration when the registration for a Google Developer account has been verified. You can now log in to your account after the registration is verified.
