    Are you using Eclipse or Android Studio?

    Here are the steps for Android Studio as I do not use Eclipse:

    1: export to Android from BB
    2: open Android Studio and select Import Project
    3: Find the exported file from BB and import. Go through all the screens by choosing ok until your project opens
    4: Once you are inside Android Studio select the tab at the top that says Build and choose Generate Signed APK
    5: Create a keystore by following the steps you see on the screen. OR if you already have a keystore then just choose the location, enter your username and password
    6: Once you have completed that hit next and build the APK.
    7: Send the APK to your friend and he can install it directly onto his device

    Cheers
