Now that you have Fastlane correctly configured for both iOS and Android, created remote apps and added some first metadata it is a good time to actually do something with your Ionic or Cordova project: build it. For this you will leverage and edit the

ionic for Ionic project,
cordova for pure Cordova projects, native tooling if there is a specific reason) and then continue with the corresponding article:
When you have a Debug version of your app you can upload your app for testing (with HockeyApp or Testflight and Play Store Alpha). After testing and you succeeded in building a Release version of your app, publish it on the stores so your users can download it.
