Interested in learning from the Dark Side

Well, the most immediate limitation is the Android GUI is not exposed to C or C++, despite likely being written in those languages for performance. google wants you to use Java or Kotlin, not even C or C++, so it doesn't provide public C/C++ GUI toolkit APIs (I suppose you could call the private APIs anyway, but that may not be stable). I'm not familiar with the tighter GC/ARC integration issues that might come up, and I've said it's not worth pushing for that for me.
