    Well, android apps are mostly developed with java, and java is the main language of the android platforms. You will have a hard time trying to develop android apps without a (at least) basic java knowledge.

    They switched you from drupal to Android, without any android nor java skills? Are they dumb?

    I'd say that Java is most certainly the easiest way to get started with, create, and deploy apps. I have deployed three apps to the market so far and have 23K+ installs.

    If you know any other programming language reasonably well, then you will easily pick up Java.

    Though, I did watch an Android keynote where they were making it easier for C and C++ game programmers to port their code natively within the framework because of the languages' greater performance. Found it: Google I/O 2011: Bringing C and C++ Games to Android - YouTube

    And here's the official Android NDK for programming in C or C++: Android NDK | Android Developers

    I hope this is helpful.
