I'm new to Android development but have been doing c# dev for 10 or so years.
I have downloaded the trial and installed the software that is required.
I am using the VS plugin with Visual Studio 2012.
I can open VS and select new project, and select "Android Application".
I am able to get an simple app (the button click demo that is provided in a new application) working in the emulators just fine.
Some things I do not understand:
I am unable to package the apk and get it working on a phone.
The APK packages and is about 100k in size. When I move to the device, it does install, and when I run it, it crashes a few seconds later.
I don't think the MONO runtime or required things on on my device and I am not sure how to get them there.
I am looking for some simple entry level help on how to get a simple first app off the ground and to a device. Even if its just hello world.
After I get that far, then I have many more questions on how to try and relate this development to what I am used to in Visual Studio and .NET
Thanks for any help you may provide!
