    I'm new... did a quick search and found no results for any of my search terms, not even 'map' so not sure if the search engine is broken or what...

    I'm trying to sign my app, generate a google maps api key, and have it work on the phone.

    When I get the API key with the debug.keystore MD5 fingerprint, it works great. But not when I create my own keystore and generate a new API key with it.

    Is this because I'm running the app through Eclipse and it always tries to 'sign' it with the debug.keystore when you're designing it? If so, how do I install the app on my phone like it's something I downloaded to test my custom keystore/google api configuration? Or if not, how do I verify my keystore is being used, and troubleshoot the problem with it?

    Right click on project > Android tools > export signed Application package

    In the wizard select the proper keystore. Upload signed apk to phone / google market ... etc etc.

    So just to be clear, I have to physically go to the drive and move the APK file to the phone?

    If I finish the wizard and then go to Run the app, it puts it on my phone for me, but is that the newly signed (custom) version, or is it still sending my phone the debug signature?
