AndroidPlot – Graphing/Plotting API for Android
For Android app developers looking for an Android graphing or plotting API, XDA forum member halfhp and a few other developers have been working on AndroidPlot.
It’s a pure Java API and developers can use it for creating dynamic and static charts within Android apps. Unlike multi-platform plotting libraries, the AndroidPlot API is designed from the ground up, exclusively for the Android platform and is compatible with most versions of Android.

AndroidPlot is free to download. To find out more information, check out the original forum thread.
