Android Java and Native Applications
The Tegra Toolkit is a large toolset which includes the following:
Visual Studio Templates - Adds compiling and debugging Android Java and Android Native Applications
Android NDK - Development kit for compiling "C" native applications
Android SDK - Software development kid for compiling Android applications
NVidia NDK modules - for hardware accelerated development
Eclipse - A common IDE for integrated Java development
NVidia Samples - A large set of hardware accelerated examples in Java and Native Applications
Examples are included at the base GIT path.
- Note: In the game details, be sure to move to external storage so the app can access the external storage drive.
External Storage - Using external storage example as a Java Activity. https://github.com/ouya/ouya-sdk-examples/tree/master/Android/ExternalStorageExample
External Storage Native - Using external storage example as a C++ Native Activity. External storage is accessed via JNI calls. https://github.com/ouya/ouya-sdk-examples/tree/master/Android/ExternalStorageExampleNative

There is also an issue with nSight and the default install of the NVIDIA Toolkit, which can be fixed by the following two options. This fixes a compile error for ANT related to Java/NDK projects.
First/easiest option to try: 1. Edit NVPACK\android-sdk-windows\build-tools\<each version>\dx.bat 2. Change "set defaultMx=-Xmx1024M" to "set defaultMx=-Xmx512M" 3. Save and exit 4. Restart Visual Studio 5. Rebuild Second option: 1. Run NVPACK\android-sdk-windows\SDKManager.exe 2. Click "deselect all" 3. If Tools : "Android SDK Build Tools Rev 19.0.1" is installed, check it for deletion 4. If Tools : "Android SDK Build Tools Rev 19" is installed, check it for deletion 5. Click "delete packages" 6. Click Tools : "Android SDK Build Tools Rev 18.1.1" 7. Click "Install packages" 8. Follow the steps to take the license and install the package

Within the Visual Studio project settings you'll find Configuration Properties->Ant Build->Additional Dependencies.
Here you can add:
JAR Directories: libs
JAR Dependencies: ouya-sdk.jar
The NVidia samples have an additional include directory.
The NVidia samples have an additional library directory.
