Introducing SL4A: The Scripting Layer for Android

P.s. - Some of you might already know this, but I thought sharing anyway.

The design of SL4A enables it to support many scripting language interpreters. In order to make practical use of SL4A, you will need to understand at least the rudiments of one high-level scripting language such as Python, Ruby, Perl, Lua,
JavaScript, or BeanShell.

Well for me its means having creating and running python scripts without having ROOT

I checked out how easy it is to create python programs. Also it is easy to create forground visible checkboxes, inputboxes, etc.
When I was checking out the sample script I found only 4 lines program able to speak the time and date via speaker using text to speech engine. I said now thats my python :-D
