Hello,

Since now we have NativeBOINC for Android, it would be great to have an app to crunch on Android.

Would love it too. Too bad they will probably ignore us. :(

Better late than never. Remember that this is funded by me, not by some NSF or government grant so there is a limited budget to buy one of everything, especially when it comes to "swiss army knives" of the computer world. I don't use my laptop as a hammer, nor do I expect my screwdriver to calculate prime numbers. As such, I use my phone to make phone calls which means I only charge it for 6-8 hours every several days. So, it is only active for 1/6 to 1/9 of the time that a real computer is running. My i7 can do a WU in 2.5 hours. My [new] Android phone will take 24 hours. At 6 hours a day charging, and since it only runs after 90% charged, I'm guessing 3-5 hours for crunching per day. So, it will crunch 3-4 WUs per week. That isn't exactly stellar performance when my i7 laptop will crunch over 500 in that same amount of time. But, for those who do not have another computer, at least they can still contribute now with their Android device.
