I tried to run it on any of the Visual Studio Android emulators and none seem to work. The emulator starts up and seems functional. However, Visual Studio just hangs and never seems to actually install the app onto the emulator. After a while if I click on the emulator to view the apps, I get a black screen in the emulator.
Today's app developers need to target web, mobile, and desktop simultaneously. Web-based technologies can help programmers accomplish this feat. Apache Cordova—an open-source mobile development framework—allows you to leverage these web-based technologies to write native applications. In this course, instructor Sahil Malik walks through how to combine Cordova, Visual Studio code, and TypeScript to develop mobile apps that target all mobile platforms.
Sahil demonstrates how to set up your environment for both Mac and Windows, write multiplatform apps using Cordova, enhance your apps to use plugins, and use TypeScript with Cordova. Instructor •. Sahil Malik is a trainer, Microsoft and iOS consultant, and the founder of Winsmarts.com.

By far the easiest way to do this is to install Android Studio. At this point, you should have Android Studio installed, so let's go ahead and launch it.
Now, the first time you launch Android Studio, it may prompt you to download the latest SDKs, it might even prompt you to go ahead and set up an emulator. Feel free to go ahead and do that. The thing about Android, and frankly all softwares, is that they update all the time. At the time of recording this course, the latest API level available is 26. I'll be showing you level 25 throughout this course. So, at this point, go ahead and click this Configure button and choose SDK Manager.
And ensure that you have Android 8.0 and 7.1.1 Nougat installed. As I mentioned, I'll be using 7.1.1 Nougat, API level 25. I installed everything with defaults, but let me go ahead and click this Show Package Details • Practice while you learn with exercise files.
