Building APK suggestion

If you are building and testing FiveTouch apk this might save a couple of steps.
Previous steps to get updated apk on phone.
    Build apk with qtcreator
    locate and copy apk to new location and name.
    create email and attach apk.
    then wait for phone to read email and install app.
New steps
    Build apk with qtcreator
    click link on phone
    download and install new version

I added a custom make process to copy apk to new location with new name.
The new location is actually a virtual directory on web server.
So after the build I just have to click link on phone and it downloads new apk.
Here is the custom make process.
This is the copyapk.bat in c:\fivetouch
In order to download apk from web site you may need to add mime type for .apk
Here is the mime type info.
Extension: .apk
MIME type: application/

Now i can just build, click on link to download, and install new version.
