3 questions I should ask before publishing theme

Thinking to post theme created through latest Theme creator (supports from kitkat to Marshmallow)
But here are some questions would like to ask :

1) Can I post themes (created using this tool) as premium themes on Google Play?

2) Should I need to send it to sony (sony theme portal) or I can directly publish themes to google playwith my existing company name (or creating a new)

3) Which process is recommended? Signing theme via theme creator or with android studio guidelines? Is there any expiry issue signing through theme creator program?

Re: 3 questions I should ask before publishing theme

This from my personal experience..

 

1) Absolutely

2) No need to involve Sony unless you'd like to have a little bit (very little) more  visibility through the Theme Portal. 

3) No expiration that I am aware of. In any case Theme Creator does all is needed, signing included. Taking care of the supported phone models and Android versions. It's actually a very good tool, and it keeps improving.

Re: 3 questions I should ask before publishing theme

First Thanks for the answer. 😃

One more thing would like to ask, this time about theme creator :-)
When adding image for "app background" and "action bar" it becomes stretched in landscape mode, there is no option to add them for landscape mode separately unlike for "navigation bar" and we are forced to use a pattern or repeating image in order to manage landscape bg. Is there any workaround for it or I am wrong in some way?

Re: 3 questions I should ask before publishing theme

I have the same issue with the backgrounds. So what I do is to make simmetric backgrounds and even if they get a bit stretched I don't care.There might be the magic dimension good for both modes, but I couldn't find it. You may open a new thread specific for this, you'll have better chances to get an answer

Yes I downloaded your theme, it's nice 👍 and I can also see that thing on horizontal mode and will be visible more especially in tablet's landscape mode.
BTW Great work 😃
