I built an app using QT quick2 and it works satisfactorily on my phone. I set it to build in release mode and built an APK to upload to google play. According to google play, however, it is 'debuggable' and as a result, google will not allow me to upload it.

Has anyone else had this problem or know what may cause it?

Do you use QtCreator?
Have you built 'release' build?
Have you 'signed' it with your own key during the build process?

Thanks for the reply. Someone on the QT forums pointed me to the guide on publishing to the play store. After I followed that the build the manifest and sign the app, it worked!
