I am not new to programming (Matlab/C/Python) but am completely new to mobile devices. I was hoping to use the Gentouch 78 to try programming in the Android OS. I have a Gentouch 78 from Kmart with Android 2.1 but have not installed any updates (because none of my desktops (Win2000 & XP) recognize the device). With no desktop connectivity, I came across a seemingly easy way to get started - SL4A previously the Android Scripting Environment - android-scripting - Project Hosting on Google Code But it isn't clear to me how to install and run such an app. There's an APK and I can get that loaded and installed but it seems the app is run from a terminal. While, I can get the terminal emulator in Dev Tools to launch, I can't seem to input anything to the command line. It's all kind of frustrating so any guidance would be appreciated. PS - How can I get the browser to refresh a page?
