Hi Denise,

Yes, an Android app is being worked on. In fact, last month some Google
engineers spent time as volunteers on the project. It is not ready yet
and, being a project done by volunteers, the timeline is a little more
flexible than most.

You can count on getting an update as soon as there is something to
report. (Who knows, maybe the release of Read2Go will still up a little
sense of competition and Operating System pride among the Android
volunteer coders.)
