2016 started pretty well with the announcement that Android++ is now open source and is publicly available for download from GitHub.
Android++ is dubbed as a freely distributed tool to simplify the creation of Android applications from within Visual Studio.
The development tool is designed mostly for the developers who are interested in doing native development as well as debugging in their C/C++ projects.
Visual Studio is an industry standard development IDE from Microsoft and supports various programming languages.
You can download the development tool from Github and get started with simplifying your native development.
