Since 2012, BOINC has been working with HTC - one of the world's leading smartphone manufacturers - to bring volunteer computing to Android devices. On February 24th we'll release an exciting result of this partnership - stay tuned!

It's a shame that while Boinc works fine on my HTC One S, finding project applications that work on it reliably is proving very difficult:

The only bright points is Albertathome's latest NEON app now does validate, rather than produce validate errors:

Did you also see that SIMAP has been working with Samsung to the same end - except this time including the project application, too?

Many smartphones are a supercomputer!
Samsung's Power Sleep App has been launched by Feb 14. This Android app is not only an alarm clock, but also supports SIMAP. During the night, when connected to WiFi and after fully loading the battery, the CPU of the smartphone or tablet crunches SIMAP work packages.

The scientific computing part of Power Sleep is just the BOINC client. The Power Sleep App has been developed by Samsung Austria and PocketScience in collaboration with the SIMAP team. It makes donating CPU time very simple for people who didn't know about BOINC before. Samsung has launched a media campaign about Power Sleep in Austria. The app, however, can be downloaded from all over the world. We hope this initiative will become a big success and will help to widely establish volunteer computing with BOINC on mobile devices.

SIMAP also supports Android devices running the native BOINC client

simap 5.01 for Android stable

The Powersleep app is just a wrapper around the native BOINC client. Seen from the server side, there's no difference at all between native Android clients and Power Sleep clients.
