Ok this is a dumb question so sorry in advance.
I have the android SDK and eclipse.
I found this script to interface arduino and android but dont have the first clue on how to import it into the eclipse or run it on my phone.  
I do have my phone connected to the SDK and have been able to run other android demo apps.

Hi livegirllove,

Best way to do that is start a new Android Application Project under File->New in Eclipse. Then create the GUI in the res/layout section on Eclipse, name it activity_main.xml so it matches the Class code that you posted. Looks like the GUI uses one Button named Connect, one ToggleButton named OnOff, and a TextView named Result.

Then make a Class named Main under src/your.package.name in Eclipse and delete all the code that Eclipse automatically puts in there except for the package your.package.name line.

Then copy/paste the code that you posted into that Main class that you just cleared. You won't need the package com.example.myApp; line, don't copy/paste that line. Save the Main class.

That's the short version, but it will get you started in the right direction.

Feel free to post some questions back for further discussion.
