I know this might be a lot to ask, but I'm looking to design an app for my company to help employees do their jobs more efficiently without having to learn Android Studio

I have a basic knowledge of C++, Javascript, HTML and CSS.

I need an app that has a list of all the products of my company, and a list of all my customers (with the ability to add a new product or a customer).

There has to be an option to choose some of the products, specify the quantities and link them to one of my customers so that at the end I would have a separate section that shows the customers with the products they bought.

In my experience in C++ I believe that the codes to write a similar app is not that hard. The issue I'm facing is how to start building this app?

Is there a platform or an app (preferably free) to help create this Android app?
Or where can I start if I want to learn to create such an app without having to learn the details of Android studio?

Full C and C++ IDE with Visual Studio

Use Visual Studio 2019 to target Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS to create apps, games, and more, taking advantage of market-leading debugging and productivity tools to get work done quickly.

There are a bunch more, if you Google, but this will get the job done (although Android Studio is still probably the best IDE for Android development). See also Android and iOS development with C++ in Visual Studio
