Looking to get into Android programming? Android smartphones sales have been exploding for a while, and most industry predictions say that this will continue for some years. An oft-quoted statistic: the number of Android devices shipping *daily* is in the range of 300,000 to 350,000. Just a few weeks / months earlier that number was 200,000 per day. So the number per day is high, and that number is also increasing.
(*) One reason why it is not possible to program all possible Android apps using SL4A, is that it only exposes a subset of Android APIs.
This Linux Journal article I saw today, gives an introduction to programming on Android using Python with the SL4A. It shows how to set up the necessary software (both on your PC and on your Android phone), and gives a couple of example Python programs that you can create on your PC (Windows, Linux or Mac OS X) and then transfer to and run on your Android phone. Here is the article link:
