Well, Einstein has a pretty smart structure and can be ported to all kinds of platforms. But to get it working well, a week or two of work is needed by a developer who knows the destination platform inside out. We already support four platforms which is pretty cool IMHO. I'll be happy to help someone to port to Android, but I don't have enough spare time to do this alone.
