Dan Roundhill, who heads up the Android app, is happy to discuss 
individual project ideas. This is the first year we've included the 
mobile apps in our GSoC Ideas list at all, so we didn't come up with 
specific ideas for the Codex page, as we weren't sure if there would 
even be any interest. Dan Roundhill and the other mobile app developers 
will be joining the list, but we'll also be setting up some IRC chats 
for potential students to talk with all the mentors, including those for 
mobile apps, and that would be a good place to get into detailed 
questions about projects, since most of the people on wp-hackers don't 
work on mobile apps.

In the meantime, you can connect directly with the Android devs at
