C4droid is a C compiler for Android.
Root is not required, but if you have rooted your device or have enough internal memory, you can get C++ support, read further. (some comments about "iostream not found" are fake, their authors just didn't follow installation instructions).
Result of compilation (binary) is placed in "/data/data/com.n0n3m4.droidc/files/temp", because sdcard doesn't have permission for execution by default.
C4droid already has almost full C language support, so you don't need to wait when it will be added.

Some components of C4droid are LGPL-licensed. You can download used source code of TCC and uClibc on their websites. C4droid includes Android Terminal Emulator so you can to run your application comfortably.
If you have rooted your device (or have enough internal memory), you can to download GCC plugin for C4droid (search in Android Market). After installing it, you can select GCC or G++ compiler in preferences.
