On Android there is something called android-privacy-guard, AGP.

useful for the key management and gui stuff I guess,
also they integrate deprecated non-MIME OpenPGP signing and encryption
to k9mail. (

Looks like they are using the Bounty Castle Crypto Java implementation.
The more end-to-end email security there is, the better,
so it is cool to see it around! :)

I just wondered: Could GnuPG run on Android? Did someone try?
