note that a search for "Android" in would have shown you the 
Guardian port of GnuPG 2.1 to Android. (I've added additional details now.)

In 2016 I've downloaded and briefly tried the app. It also was available from 
the Free Software app store for Android: fdroid. So it indeed build and ran.

The 2016 study for using OpenPGP on Android (in German) linked from
has a more elaborate discussion of the port. It tests the 2014 version
that was supposed to be installed from the app store between 100k and 500k
