Is there currently a way of developing android apps on an android phone? In other words, write, compile, install and run regular android java on the phone without using a pc? If not, what would make it possible, if at all? (would rooting be necessary? Or an android emulator compiled for android?)

I think that's not the first, (IIRC) terminal-ide was available sooner. –  Tamás Szelei Apr 27 '12 at 7:20
    
AIDE is absolutely the best Android-on-Android development environment - it also comes with built-in GIT support. –  Edward Bowles Apr 27 '12 at 8:51
