Versioning Your Application

Versioning your application appropriately is vital to maintaining your application in the field. Intelligent versioning can help reduce confusion and make product support and upgrades simpler. There are two different version attributes defined within the <manifest> tag: the version name and the version code.

The version name (android:versionName) is a user-friendly, developer-defined version attribute.

Developers use this version information to keep track of their application versions in the field.We discuss appropriate application versioning for mobile applications in detail in Chapter 26,"The Mobile Software Development Process."
