Installation on Android

Kivy is a Python framework, and simply installing it on an Android device the same way as on a desktop machine will do nothing. However, you can compile a Kivy application to a standard Android APK that will run just like a normal java app on (more or less) any device.

We provide several different tools to help you run code on an Android device, covered fully in the Android packaging documentation. These include creating a fully standalone APK that may be released on an Android store, as well as the ability to run your Kivy apps without a compilation step using our pre-prepared Kivy Launcher app.
