Apps Android tools to develop my first app


Feb 5, 2023

I have a project and I'm heading towards you to know which way I should go according to your experiences.

I want to make a gamepad type application communicating in bluetooth.
A type of joystick that I like is the classic one that we can see in mobile games, a point in a defined area and buttons depending on my needs.
When I will have a functional application, I would like to improve it so that my application is also compatible with gamepad devices.
I want to focus on Android only, I don't have a Mac or an iPhone so anyway...

My experience in Android development is limited to a simple application with React Native so I would like to have your opinion on what is the best way to achieve my goals?
Are Flutter or React Native viable solutions or should I focus on Android Studio directly?

Thanks for your opinions!
