Hi there,

It is depending on your experience. You develop android by Java. You also can do it by Flash Actionscript with Adobe Air as well. If you are familiar with HTML and javascript, I suggest you to use PhoneGap.

You should use Java, please don't use PhoneGap or any similar HTML based framework.

Java is the primary android development language, but you don't need. C++, Python, Ruby and others, are the Scripting Environment.

Thus the other languages are the "Enhancements of the Application"

I Personally like Java using Eclipse IDE ... Java is only and most popular programming language that is used for developing Android apps.

I recommend native programming only for now, and wait and see how Javascript is holding up in 2016
