Visual C++ for Cross-Platform Mobile Development
You can use Visual Studio to share, reuse, build, deploy, and debug your cross-platform mobile code. Create projects from templates for Android Native Activity apps, or for shared code libraries that you can use on multiple platforms and in Xamarin native Android applications. Use platform-specific IntelliSense to explore APIs and generate correct code for Android or Windows targets. Configure your build for x86 or ARM native platforms. Deploy your code to attached Android devices or use Microsoft’s performant Android emulator for testing.
Set breakpoints, watch variables, view the stack and step through code in the Visual Studio debugger. The LogCat viewer displays the message log from an Android device. Share all but the most platform-specific code across multiple app platforms, and build them all with a single solution in Visual Studio.
Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova
Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova, formerly known as Multi-Device Hybrid Apps for Visual Studio, make it easy to build, debug, and test cross-platform apps that target Android, iOS, Windows, and Windows Phone from one simple Visual Studio project.
Visual Studio Emulator for Android
You can use the Visual Studio Emulator for Android either in a cross-platform project in Visual Studio (Xamarin or C++), or in Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova. The emulator allows you to switch between different platform emulators without Hyper-V conflicts. It supports GPS/Location, accelerometer, screen rotation, zoom, SD card, and network access.
