    I am going to publish an Android app that you have to pay for in Google Play. If I understand it right, I need to include the license key (64base RSA) that has been assigned to the app in Google Play into the APK file. How can I do that, using the Telerik AppBuilder windows client?

    Hi Ola,

    Are you talking about incorporating Google's License Validation Library (LVL) into your app? If that is the case this feature requires implementing a custom Cordova plug-in. After some research we have found so far only code samples like this one: PhoneGap Android License Key App Checker Plugin, but nothing ready-made you can use directly in your application.

    If this is important and implementing a custom plug-in on your own is not an option, you can open a bounty in community forums like stack overflow or post a feature request in the Icenium Feedback Portal. If there is enough interest from other customers as well, we might consider providing such a plug-in ourselves with one of the future releases, but as of now, you are the second person to request it.

    Icenium is now Telerik AppBuilder, and is part of the Telerik Platform. For more information on the new name, and to learn more about the Platform, register for the free online keynote and webinar on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. ET (8:00 a.m. PT)
