  • Guido,

    thank you for getting back so fast.

    I am not sure if this is the answer I am looking for.  BUT it does have a beginners section with forums and links so I will need to take lots more time to see if the "beginners" sections are too advanced for me.  

    that may take a quite a bit of time. so to not have this hanging for to long I am marking this as answer.

    It is close to what I am looking for.    I will post again if I need another suggestion on where to look.

  • Microsoft acquired Xamarin for this. Might try asking for help over here.

  • Dave Patrick,

    thanks again.

    info did lead to links about using VSTO, w/emulators for android phones using Xamarin, also had link to pros and cons of using it.

    and tutorials for Xamarin using VSTO community 2019RC
