It is possible to use Processing to make a native Android app.

To do so you need to install:

• Processing
• Android mode in Processing
• Android SDK (Software Development Kit)

Also it is possible to install additional libraries in Processing to access the sensors of your mobile device more easily. One that I found useful is the Ketai library.


The following steps worked for my computer (Processing 2.2.1 and on OSX 10.9)
