    We have been approached by a company that wants to hand out codes for a free, branded version of an app that we sell on the Google Play store.

    I wonder how this could best be implemented. We could upload the branded version as a separate app to the store and generate the required number of license keys. However, this approach would mean that we have to maintain a separate version, that the branded version has a publicly visible entry in the store, and we'll also run afoul of the store policy by not giving Google its share.

    Another way would be to allow to enter a code in the free version of our app and then switch to a special mode. However, this way customers would see the unbranded version first and I don't think that's whats wanted for a promotion.

    Simply hosting an APK on a separate web page would require manual installation and not provide automatic updates.

    Can you think of a good way to provide a branded version that's sold in bulk?

    What you're trying to do is known as a white-label app. I used to work for a company that did these. But none of ours were paid, and none of them were our brand. I would suggest researching white-label apps and see if that turns up any useful info.
