    For a college assignment I need to know two things:

    What language Android is written in?

    AND

    What software is used to create Android?

    Please can anyone help me with this?


    Thanks

    Hi, and welcome to the forums!

    Android applications are usually developed in the Java language using the Android Software Development Kit, but other development tools are available, including a Native Development Kit for applications or extensions in C or C++, and Google App Inventor, a visual environment for novice programmers. You should be able to find more information in the Android Development forums.
