    Thank-you! It as so hard to find the answer because everyone doesn't speak the same language. That includes native languages, dialects along with the way individuals EXPLAIN the things they are saying. A computer "geek" doesn't always use the same words a manager of a grocery store might to describe the process needed to use their program effectively for the managers needs. So the program that they write is only as good as the words they use to explain how to use it.

    It as so hard to find the answer because everyone doesn't speak the same language.

    The intended language of this forum is English. And copy/pasting the question [ What programming language do Android developers use ] into a Google search box brought up the first page of links in a couple seconds.

    Each of the first few result links gave the answer, and the first link also linked directly to the Android Developers Application Fundamentals manual. It's not clear how it could have been easier in almost any language. A search in a different language should lead to the same sources.

    Since the specific sources that I read were in English, it would seem just as easy reading those as reading an answer here in this forum. Can you explain why a search would be hard?

    Tom

    Java seems to be the go to language in my experience.

    I use the Android Programming Language. You've probably never heard of it.
