Can I use python to develop application for Android platform? Where should I start?
Looks like there's an alpha project on Google Code for running Python and other scripting languages on the Android runtime: http://code.google.com/p/android-scripting/
Head First Python from O'Reilly uses Python to build a database, that turns into a web app, that they finally port to Android. I've only skimmed it (my public library has a subscription to Safari Books Online).
There is the ASE (android scripting environment) which will let you make python programs. But there isn't a way to distribute these programs to those not running ASE so your app isn't as accessible as one written in Java (dalvik). Basically if you want to pass it around to people or possibly get it in the market then python probably isn't the way to go, a real shame as I'd love to do this!
