NVIDIA has its GameWorks program for PC developers and now the firm expands this to the Android marketplace with the introduction of AndroidWorks, a collection of developer tools and libraries designed to drive adoption of advanced gaming technologies. Full details at NVIDIA.
We based AndroidWorks on our Tegra Android Developer Pack. But it’s not just for Tegra-powered devices. It’s a professional-grade tool designed to provide the best development platform for all Android devices.

AndroidWorks reduces the complex process of configuring an Android development system down to a single click. It also integrates with Microsoft Visual Studio through Nsight Tegra, Visual Studio edition. So game developers can work in their favorite environment.

NVIDIA’s tool advancements are refining Android to a level matching game console development. – Niklas Smedberg, senior graphics programmer at Epic Games.

Our aim: To unshackle developers from the constraints of the Android software development kit — and unleash the power found in Android devices.

AndroidWorks saves developers time by providing a reliable source for debugging their applications.
