I have a problem. I have a .deb file for my ubuntu app, but I want users to be able to install it using the sudo apt-get install command. How would I make it so that anyone can install my .deb file with sudo apt-get install?

You could read about 'personal package archives' (PPA). That's one method to share a debian packaged program with many other users. To install it then they need to do nothing but this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:YOUR-LAUNCHPAD-USERNAME/PPA-NAME 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install SOFTWARE-NAME

Those PPAs are hosted on Launchpad so there website might be a good place to start at.
