Self-fulfillment in what you're doing? Probably still Kotlin but not Android.

Why is that, why not Android?

For much the same reasons as @jmfayard mentioned: The Android SDK is huge and full of traps. Traps which (unlike JS) result in crashes and the App just outright not running. Kotlin as a language is great, but Android as a platform is incredibly frustrating.
