From AIDE Team:
AIDE is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing real Android Apps directly on Android devices. AIDE supports the full edit-compile-run cycle: write code with the feature rich editor offering advanced features like code completion, real-time error checking, refactoring and smart code navigation, and run your App with a single click. AIDE will turn your Android tablet with keyboard into a real development box. We use the Transformer Prime running Ice Cream Sandwich to code with AIDE. AIDE will turn your Android Phone into a small development computer to browse and touch your code on the go.AIDE is fully compatible with Eclipse projects. You can just copy the sourcecode to your device and open the Eclipse project in AIDE to start coding. Alternatively you can keep your sourcecode on your Dropbox - AIDE integrates with Dropbox and allows to easily download from your Dropbox and sync back your changes.

Version: AIDE - Android Java IDE 1.0.beta12
If properly implemented the concept has good potential.
Text editor: auto-indenting wastes massive screen real-estate and cannot be disabled. In a mobile environment we need to see code not empty spaces. Even after manually deleting unnecessary spaces and tabs once <return> is pressed the text editor restores the indent, this is torture! Further the error highlighting is very, very wrong and the red waving is to big in size; it covers the text so we cannot read it. One wastes 90% of development time with correcting text editor's problems. IDE: The weird limitation to two java classes per project does not allow for proper testing prior to purchasing the IDE. The compiler refuses to compile proper classes at random.
In 35+ years as professional programmer (from assembler to Fortran, Cobol, Visual Basic, PERL), never I experienced such a poor IDE. This IDE is far away from what it claims to be: a On The Go platform for our Android smart phones.
