Is it possible to be productive with only a smartphone?

In the last month, I was in several situations where I was bored to death and had only my Android phone for amusement (Samsung Galaxy S2, for those wondering). I have the itch to program or do something productive in these situations, but for the life of me, I can’t think of any such option and I usually end up playing a brain-numbing game instead.

I am catching up on some reading in Hacker News, but when I have several hours to pass, it’s just not enough. There’s a new Github app out there, but my repositories don’t have enough activity for me to do anything with it. I also didn’t find any free Git client for the Android, so just getting my code is kind of a hassle. Same goes for a Python shell of some sort.

So, the title of this post is an actual question on my part, not rhetorical: how do you stay productive on your phone?
