What do you use for Android apps? Android Studio?

Here is a short list of what is needed.

1) Add Username and Password to the preferences in the settings activity. (Required to generate an Authentication Key)
2) Also, add APIKey and SecurityKey to the preferences in the settings activity. (Required to generate an Authentication Key)
3) Determine where and how to add the AES-256-CBC Encryption code.
4) Add the Authentication key to the end of all REST request in the code. ak={AuthKey}
5) Finally, add any additional coding to handle Denied access or Permission to low, ect....

I will help you with as much as I can. I have been all through the AES-256-CBC code for Javascript and .Net, so I'm very familiar with it, and I'm sure there is a library we can import in to the project that will simplify our coding.

I think it was put in a different repository because it was not developed in Visual Studio. So people would generally want to store the files in a different location than their VS files.

OK Wow,

I downloaded Android Studio.
For starters, there appears to be 2 different projects in the repo.
1) OSA
2) OSA Extension

i can open the first one with NO error what so ever, however, I don't think this is the correct project.
If I try to open the second one, there is a lot more coding and fictions, however it has errors that I do not know where or how to resolve.

So, I'm not to sure what I will be able to do here, But I'm still chugging at it.
