I am a newbe with mobile apps.
I want to create a simple "text only" app for my phone. Infact, the app is written in QB64 which claims to have an interface to Android via Studio.
At this stage, all I want is a QB64 program to display "Hello Android" on the phone. However, not knowing Studio at all, I do not know where to start. I am asking for someone to take me through the steps so as to get the gradle to build the app successfully. Getting "error. Third parameter of 'main' (environment) must be of type 'char **'. Error: assigning to 'char *'

I am not clear about QB64. But there is a guide about getting started as well as more samples and document in the official android development website.

Download size < 0.08 MB. But also Ad-free, Pure & Accurate enough.
The minimalist app is available on Google Play https://goo.gl/ws42fN

Thank you James.
The QB64 website is down for weeks now but I managed to retrieve its android install guide via the waybackengine website.
I will check-out the andriod developement site.

The QB64 site is back online but not much help came from that side either.
So for the time being, I have given up to get a QBASIC (QB64) program to run on an Android device.
