Apple's Swift has been available for over a year now, and Apple has promised it will be made available under an Open-Source license by the end of 2015.

That's great, but could I run Swift code on an Android device today?

Bad move from Apple to be honest, from the development point of view might look like a good idea to be able to develop for both platforms but in the end it will flood both markets with identical apps making it harder for developers to profit.

There is way too much competition on the app store already and some great apps are priced very low not because they are making a lot money but because they are trying desperately to make some.
