Hi there!
I've got my Android tablet for a few months now (the Acer Iconia A500). It's got full support of usb host. What I'd like to do is program my arduino using android on my tablet connecting the Arduino by an unmodified usb cable.
My question is : is there any developper who could port the IDE to android?
I know serial port works really well through usb on Android, I've already tried using an app on the merket.

Thanks a lot!

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

The problem is not porting the IDE (which is java based) but porting the compilers and AVR tools ....

Ok. Off you go then.

Android may be Linux based, but it is a very cut down distribution. There are, AFAIK, no compiler tool chains that work natively on Android, which means you will need to port the entire avr-gcc set to ARM. Even the so-called Android Native Development Kit still requires you to build your application on another platform.

You can use ArduinoCommander if you need to upload compiled arduino sketches:

Yes it's pretty difficult as android developers usually have java background and it differs from native (c/c++) development a lot..
