Adding Android project to existing UWP solution? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Warning....stark beginner at mobile app development....

    I am beginning my long journey on mobile app development and need some basic guidance. 

    My fundamental question is, how do I, or can I, add an Android app to an existing UWP application? The UWP application is a Microsoft tutorial called PhotoLab.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/samples/microsoft/windows-appsample-photo-lab/photolab-sample/

    If this is not the correct forum, can someone point me to the right location for this question?

    Thanks

    Mike

  • Hi!

    To be honest, I am not aware of any methods of converting native UWP apps into mobile apps (Android/Ios).

    Nowadays, if you want cross compatibility and same code base, I'd go with react native, this way you would be able to use the same code or share components between the windows app and mobile apps.

    Examples of boilerplates you could use:

    Windows/Xbox: https://github.com/microsoft/react-native-windows
    Web: https://github.com/theqdev/react-big-bang
    Mobile: https://github.com/infinitered/ignite

    Have a good one!
