No. But why?

The best parts of an app are usually not in the code. For example, now that Pokemon Go is out, they just revealed what makes for an breakthrough AR app.

I've seen great ideas wither, fade and vanish as the authors worry about code protection. They miss the market.

So are you going to be great or are you going to miss your market?

For small new Apps, it's be necessary

For special case like Angry bird, gmail, facebook- messenger, ..., no one try to decompile these apps, because he has no chance to compete with the authors.
But for small new Apps, there are a lot of bad guys try to decompile them. After that, they can easy to make the fake-app, same features but different App-name/ Package-name/... and re-up to the google store to make money. In this case, the problem is not the missing the market or not.

Then I take it you are not going to publish at all?

I've seen so many would be authors that falter at the starting gate.

Don't be like them! Run, go fast, publish, enjoy!
