I just want an apk!

You will still need the Android sdk installed, but because we use gradle the following command in the terminal should be enough: ./gradlew assembleDefaultRelease. The apk ends up in Clover/Clover/app/build/outputs/apk/default/release/. See the comment in the build.gradle file how to sign your apk.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
