How do I set (Android) build essentials?

In order to submit your apps to the App stores, they need to be signed. This process varies across platforms. The Android app must be signed for distribution.

Rules to follow to create a package name are:

  1. All the characters must be alphanumeric or separated by an underscore [a-z, A-Z, 0-9].
  2. The characters must have at least two segments separated by one or more dots.
  3. Each segment must start with a letter.

Perform the steps listed to set the build essentials:
