Hi, I've just released an open-source tool which allows compilation of NDK-based apps under Visual Studio. Here's a list of features: Compile and link Android C/C++ projects within Visual Studio. Integrated development, no makefiles. Works as another 'Platform' type. Android settings co-exist within the same VS projects as other platforms. Supports static library projects, and links them in if marked as project dependencies. Intellisense and 'External Dependencies' correctly pull in Android NDK headers. Cygwin install is not required. Around twice as fast as using ndk-build under Cygwin. For full rebuilds, and incremental changes. Ctrl-F7: compile single file functions, has no dependency checking wait. Supports invoking ant after linking, such that you end up with a packaged ready-to-deploy .apk file. Download it here: http://code.google.com/p/vs-android/ Hope it's useful to some of you. Feedback, comments, bug-reports welcome! Cheers, Gavin.
