RFO BASIC! is a dialect of Dartmouth Basic that allows you to write and run programs directly on your Android device.

There is a 100+ page manual available in pdf, docx and html format.

In addition to the traditional Basic features, your have access to:

Graphics (with Multi-touch),
Build User Interfaces with HTML and JavaScript,
Device Sensors,
Music Play,
Text to Speech,
Voice Recognition,
Sound Pools,
Audio Recording,
Tone Generation,
Data Structures such as:Array/List/Stack/Bundle
Internet Browsing,
Text and Byte file I/O,
User defined functions,
FTP Client,
TCP/IP Client and Server Sockets,
Send and Receive SMS Messages,
Send Emails,
Make a phone call,
Superuser access

BASIC! programs may be complied into applications. There are two processes provided for this. One process generates a home screen shortcut but requires BASIC! installed to run. The other process generates a stand alone application that does not need BASIC! installed. The resulting application can be offered on the Android Market.

All of the features of BASIC! are documented in the manual, De Re BASIC!, which is currently over 200 pages in size.

The install package includes over three dozen BASIC! source code files that explain and demonstrate the implementation details of this dialect.

BASIC! is being continuously improved. New releases have come at an average of one every two weeks. Many of the improvements have come from user requests. Join the BASIC! forum and become part of the development team.

Very cool, exactly what I was looking for - no complaints. Any chance we'll get the ability to compile to a standalone application?
