I have signed and zipalign my android application and now wishes to upload it on the play store. I however get the following message when I am done uploading it:

Upload failed Your APK's package name must be in the following format "com.example.myapp". It may contain letters (a-z), numbers, and underscores (_). It must start with a lowercase character. It must be 150 characters or fewer.

My apk name is


So I don't understand why it does not comply?

Thanks in advance

    I would guess that there is one . too many in your name? Try calling it afm.aftermath.apk, for example, and see if that works.

    Don't confuse the package name with the name of the APK - they are different.

    You can inspect the AndroidManifest.XML in the folder obj/Debug/android/. You can see the package name in there. There are a couple of ways to set the package name in your project, the most common way is the Project options, look under the Android Application settings.
