I’d like to chime in here and note that, valuations of usefulness aside, it *is* possible to develop in C against an Android device, without needing any hacks, using the NDK. As someone who has occasionally worked on big codebases written in C and C++ for Android devices, I would argue there’s value to be had there. :-) > Cheers, > > Alex - Shiz : https://developer.android.com/ndk
