Email Publishing

What is the step by step process of publishing APK file using Email?

    How do you define "publish"? You can certainly send someone a .apk by email:

    1. Build a Release .apk.
    2. Locate bin\Release\YourApp-Signed.apk.
    3. Email bin\Release\YourApp-Signed.apk to whomever you like.

    But that's not "publishing" it such that anyone that you didn't email it to can access it...

    To expand on what @jonp said, there are something things that owners of the device must do to allow that APK to be installed : explicitly allow applications that are not from Google Play to be installed.

    Part 5 - Publishing Independently of the Publishing an Application guide contains some details on this.
