First off, please accept my apologies if i have posted this in the wrong place.
Now, I'm wondering if it is possible to release my app elsewhere before committing to paying Google £25 for the privilege. The reason being is that i want a select few people to be able to help out with Beta testing my first app before i release it to the general public and to help improve it with suggestions before i have to pay the Google Play registration fee for something which may never make it to market.
So, my question to you is;
Are there any alternative outlets or is it possible to share my app in some way instead of initially going down the Google route?
Many thanks in advance!
