  • Hello Eric,

    >>i am not sure can visual studio 2017  develop native app using c#?

    You could get touched with Xamarin technology, which develop with a C#-shared codebase and developers can use Xamarin tools to write native Android, iOS, and Windows apps with native user interfaces and share code across multiple platforms, including Windows and macOS.

    So you could use visual studio 2017(IDE) to develop native app using Xamarin.

    try to look up here, Android: Quickstart
