General Android Questions?

Posted 06 December 2012 - 11:34 PM

I have been getting into Android Development, and I need to understand if it's mandatory to have a website for the package name of your application. Such as com.example.blahblah. Because I do not really have a website, well not at the moment. Is it bad to use my gmail? What do you think is preferable, and more professional to use if someone does not have a website? I can sure use some pointers =]

THe package name is simply a means of providing a guaranteed unique namespace. A company's URL is of course globally unique. Your email is likewise globally unique, so that's a fine solution. If you're going to release apps, I would invest in a domain. Even if you don't actually host it, it gives you a chance for forward continuity - later on, you might want to build something there, if you think something's happening with your apps. It's a relatively small investment, all things considered.
