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)

step #3
download and move android-mode for Processing and place in folder „modes”
(strangely the latest version of android mode @ the official website doesn’t work for me)

stap #5
follow the steps in this blogpost to add a JDK to the Processing app’s Package Contents
