By default, the Intel XDK's build process gives you two APKs. Each supports a different CPU Architecture. The steps for publishing both are located here:
However, the built APKs do not work "as is" for publish to the Google Play Store. According to Android's source for using Multiple APK ( https://developer.android.com/google/play/publishing/multiple-apks.html ), the APKs must be built using different version codes. This requires you to increment the version code and build a second set of APKs. If you don't do this, you receive an error.
As a feature request, can a 2nd field be added to specify a different version code for each CPU architecture? This would eliminate the requirement of building twice (and the confusion around it)
Did you try to upload both apk from same build using the advanced mode? I have no problem, the store adds a number to the version code.
My version code is 2, the upload set it to 22 and 24.
Interesting. I did attempt to upload the 2nd APK while in advanced mode, but I received an error saying the version code needed to be incremented.
It's entirely possible I messed something up. The next time I need to push an update I'll attempt this again using APKs from the same build and see if the issue occurs again.
The two APK files you get do have different version codes (the x86 APK should have a higher version code than the ARM APK file). If you are updating an existing multi-APK app you may have to redo your version codes.
