Convert Pano2vr Project to Native Android App (no size restriction)

Post by 1uv3 » Sat Sep 28, 2019 3:14 am

Hi All,

I figured that I would demonstrate......key word......demonstrate my workflow for converting Pano2vr projects to an APK (without size restrictions) that can be uploaded to Google Play for download.

The latter part requires a developers license and 3 more steps but is not complicated. I do not show how to publish to the Play Store but instructions on how can be found online and are pretty easy to follow.

With that said, you will need a number of programs and files to get this working....such as:
  • Android Studio
  • Cordova for Win or MAC
  • a bunch of other things that I can't remember
You may be asking yourself, "Courtney, why even show your workflow if you don't explain everything needed in order for someone to follow?" and I would say to you, "That is a great question!" The answer is that once I started installing cordova and attempted to run the cmd commands as shown in the video, I would get an error. I would search out the error and find the fix online. This took a couple of days, but in the end....it works as expected :-)

Your mileage WILL vary :-)

Good luck to all who attempt!!!

Should also add that without the help from Tony Redhead's original tutorial https://tonyredhead.com/phonegap-build/ ... rs-android that I would have never figured this APK stuff out. Thanks for that Tony!!!

Hey, let me know how you fair :-)

Here is a video of me showing that the same apk that was created in the video above works on my Galaxy S9 Plus. I am 100% sure now that the reason it didn't work on my wife's phone is because you have to build the apk with a minimum target Android version and the version I was using by default is 8 and my wife's phone is still on kitkat I believe..

Thanks Tony! I was merely standing on the shoulders of giants on that one ;-)
