Hi Leif,

Speaking only for myself, I would welcome a WordPress Android App.

I even considered doing it myself. Though I was thinking of porting the
official WordPress iPhone app. As open source and aimed at a similar
platform (in terms of functionality), it seemed like a good place to start.

However lack of time and my reluctance to revive my not-touched-for-a-year
Java skills have kept me from doing anything about it.

I hope you do get to do the app, whether as GSoC or not.  Good luck.

Mike Little
