    iOS: Objective-C, Swift
    Android: Java
    Windows Phone: C#

    or if you want crappy performance, use HTML5/JS to create cross platform mobile applications!

    For android I use Java, and for ipad and iphone people use Objective-C. I think the big picture here is java, not because of android, but blackberry and other SDKs like Samsung is developed by Java. And JavaME was also big one before the android. And there is hybrid applications done with HTML5, CSS, JS.

    iOS: Objective-C, tho Swift is the new language. For Android: Most developers use Java. Windows Phone: C# is the standard language. Firefox OS: HTML5. HTML5 with JavaScript can be used to develop low-end apps that run on multiple devices.

    If you want to focus on Android, you'll have to use Java.
    I've also heard you can port Rails code to work on Android, but I'm not sure about that.

    I have done some Java programming recently for an android application and was thinking about whether what I was doing was only significantly less confused, yet for the most part the same as what an expert versatile application fashioner would do..

    React Native is starting to gain some traction. If you're a javascript developer, this is a huge win.

    Java is the one that I like!
    But, with the rise of Jquery, it is wise to invest some times learning how to develop an app with JQuery?
    You just need a mobile device that support JQuery. No virtual machine like with Java, C++ or C#.

    Eclipse is not programming language, Eclipse is compiler. I am using it when I make any Android application. Java is programming language which I using for Android app.

    it will mostly depend on the final use of the app. if you want it to only run on the mobile phone or you want it to run on mobile and also in other platforms such as a website.mostly we use java, c and c++ for android applications. thanks

    c# was already mentioned, but combined with xamarin platform you can export to ios and android with quite good performance. Although I think to nothing beats native development.

    I use swift and c# is still a good programming language. But I dont recommend using java because of security issues.
