Google recently announced via a post on the Android Developers Blog that the Android Market now supports multiple APKs. This will allow developers to upload more than one version of their application to the Android Market — even though the versions all share the same name, screen shots, features, and performance. The benefit is that it will give developers the power to create specific variants of their applications for specific devices. Developers will be able to adjust for screen size, resolution, platform versions, etc. For example, developers can separate smartphone and tablet variants of their applications, though this will be transparent to users who download the applications. Google has updated the Android Developer Console with support for these new tools.
