I manage to compile one test project for Android using Visual Studio 2015 (free edition).
It was pretty easy, just created a new Cordova project, then copy the exported files to www directory, then hit F6 (Build Solution).
I got a working apk which has ONLY 400KB in size and starts INSTANTLY (To me this is an insane difference)
The downside is that the performance is very bad. 10FPS instead of 60FPS with IntelXDK.
Does anyone know how to change the browser (to Crosswalk) or some other settings in VS2015 that will increase FPS ?
