I would like to see a version of Gramps that could be used on android devices. This would very useful for portability. Even a read only version would be useful.
All for it +1
My work around at the moment is exporting to GEDCOM and use one the many GEDCOM apps on Android.

Mention in User manual:
- Does Gramps work on my mobile device? Short answer is no, Gramps cannot be installed on your Mobile Phone or tablet( Google Android or Apple iOS ) More technical answer is yes if you can install a version of Linux Operating systems on the mobile device along with all the support packages.
Have you tried using the Chrome Remote desktop app? I don’t have a tablet, but I have a Chromebook with a touchscreen, and using Remote Desktop I’m able to navigate within Gramps which is running on my desktop Mac. Of course I can use the mouse and keyboard as well, since it’s a Chromebook, but even using only the touch screen I can get around well enough for browsing purposes, so I imagine it might work that way on a tablet as well. (I also have Gramps installed as a Linux app on my Chromebook; I use that as my sandbox.)
