hi jakob

my experience is with PDDroidparty, I am not sure if it is very 
different with MobMuPlat. If you can stick to PDpDroidarty like 
developing system it makes the working process way more simple than 
going into something like OpenFrameworks + libPD

some years ago I tried other options (OF, Processing, Python), from all 
of them Processing was the easier one for me, but it was only Android at 
the time. not sure now. However using PDDroidParty is by far way easier 
than any of those, but you are limited by the GUI elements you can use.

I dont think you can get GEM working on android. All the externals I 
have used are pure pd, no binaries.

good luck
