Steps for preparing Ionic 2 app for Play Store


For Ionic 1 we have a guide on publishing the app to different app stores.

Does Ionic 2 has different process to make the apk file ready for listing in app stores? Does Ionic 1 steps apply to Ionic 2 as well?

Does a normal cordova build uses AOT compilation?

Hi @Purusothaman. You can still use that guide, the steps provided are the same. The AOT compiler is an Angular related feature, so no need to worry about that when making a release build! Good luck.


Where you able to build the release apk?

I’m using rc0 and my ionic icons are not showing up.


Yes. I had no issues related to icons in the release app.
