    You will use the Java programming language to develop Android apps. See the Android Hello World Tutorial.

    Generally developers must create two separate apps - one for Android and one for iPhone. There are some 3rd party tools you can use to develop an app for both, but it looks like they might violate Apple's terms. Read this thread at Stack Overflow.

    Yeah you will mostly need to use Java oriented tools.
    However the Native Development Kit (NDK) can assist you with using C code in Android if you already have a bunch of C code under your belt with iOS.
