Great !!!!!!

Of course fpGUI / LCL would be a nice and easy way to have an 
application run on Android.

As you know I am working on a bare metal embedded ARM Linux system (no 
Android installed). I did install GTK so maybe an application with GTK 
Widget type could work, but for embedded stuff fpGUI makes more sense.

Right now I have a testing hardware with a processor that does not do 
hardware rendering and the GUI (I just tested some standard "Desktop"s) 
seem rather sluggish. In the end I supposedly will use a chip that has a 
hardware rendering unit, thus using fpGUI with openGL support seem a 
perfect choice.

Thanks for your work, (and let me know when I can of any help...)
