I would welcome a mobile app for Android, absolutely. This is the future that is already here.
(I'm currently using Andropilot to record live telemetry data from a flying plane (equipped with APM and 433MHz telemetry) to mobile phone's sd card, a genial system that works like a charm and makes me smile every time I use it . APM has autopilot but I still rely Guardian on top of everything to save the plane if things go out of control. )

I don't like carrying laptops (that are mostly designed for indoor use) in the field if the only purpose is to adjust some simple parameters, a job that would suit ideally to modern mobiles or tablets. For Guardian, h/w exists already (=USB port), the only thing needed is a mobile app. Shouldn't be too difficult to make, I guess, but would add definitely the product value even for the existing units.
