The NX actually on the android

So some people have managed to run the lowres NX on Android via raspberry pi or RetroArch but I have a plan to make it into an actual Android app. So using the source code provided in git hub we can compile it into a .apk file to install the app on any Android device. How would you compile it? Android studio. I haven't done this myself yet but it's piqued my interest.

iOS is different than android
iOS uses swift and Android uses java, afaik
If you were talking about pc source, there is just no way : no keyboard, neither no gamepad
And you cant drag and drop programs lol

The core of LowRes NX is written in plain C, which you can compile for Android. But it's only the player and there is no visual touch gamepad included. And of course there is no included editor.

I wrote more about it here:

Little late to the party but, to get the gamepad/keyboard functions, you need to install the gamepad app by fishstix and map out “A” and “B” to X and Y respectively. Though, if you’re going to make the android player, I don’t think it will be possible to have a Player 2 due to the fact that neither the regular keyboards nor gamepad have the appropriate keys to map out Player 2 fully.
