Making Android apps on Android

Is it possible to create Android apps on an Android device using Kotlin? Or do you need Android Studio for PC/Mac?

You can make android app and control devices




I already know about AIDE. I just wanted to know if you could use Kotlin instead of Java but it looks like you can't. Thanks to both of you


To develop serious Android app, you need Android Studio. The first language of Android is Java, but in Android Studio you can choice Kotlin. I suggest to use Java because there is a lot of documentation and examples in Java code and instead Kotlin is a new language. The interesting in Android Studio is that you can convert Java code into Kotlin and vice versa. In my point of view Kotlin is dialect of Java and for me Java is more expressive and easy for beginners (but this is my personal opinion). Happy coding.


if you like a Processing-like approach you can try APDE app that will export your code as a separate app.
