Signing APK

Can someone please tell me how to sign my apk files to work on an android phone. I know its something to do with keystore etc but cant seem to find a guide i can follow. i get so far and then it becomes a bit convoluted. Is there an easy way of creating and managing keys etc and signing the files?
