What is the general consensus about android wallets for alt-coins? do people think they are worth investing time/energy into creating? Would they actually be used? Or, are people worried about potential android bugs and wouldn't use a mobile wallet even if it were available?

Trying to prioritize features/services here.

I think there would definitely be a market for something like this.  You will always have some people that won't trust such things, but I think you would get a decent following as well.  There are more mobile devices than desktops currently in the world, and this gap is going to keep increasing as technology improves.

How do you make an android wallet?  I heard it's like Linux so will the Linux qts be compatible on droid?  I'm interested for an android wallet for the parabola project.

A parabola (plural parabolas or parabolae, adjective parabolic, from Greek: παραβολή) is a two-dimensional, mirror-symmetrical curve.  y = x2

The thought is to find an android dev who is interested in building one if there is interest. That is yet to be decided though...

There are already two coin apps: Bitcoin and Litecoin.  Copy/Paste and Find/Replace is much harder on these Apps than it is on with the QT source, but it can be done.  That is probably why only a few alt coins have apps now.

Do not use the LTC one.

I heard there are new viruses in some android apps that mine for coins using a smart phone then send them to the hacker who made the virus. Phones are not really powerful enough for mining so it damages them and drains the battery very quickly. Maybe this kind of thing puts people off using android wallets.

I think an Android wallet is as essential as a light multibit style wallet.  I think having both of these things so quickly gave Dogecoin a real boost early on, but I agree that it has to be from a trusted source.  I love carrying around my dogecoins with me like I can carry my bitcoins in the hope that one day I will see a shop that accepts them, but as I browse a lot on my phone it is also a quick way to access them to send.  Never had any problems with the dogecoin wallet.

One thing I would love to see is more multi coin wallets. I am not sure of the practicalities, but a BTC, LTC and DOGE android wallet would be super cool.

Thank you Ahmed.

Would you be willing to code one for Hirocoin ? The reward for doing so is 2 BTC.

what algo is hirocoin?

The hirocoin algo is X11. 

For the developers that want to design a X11 based Android Wallet.  Take a look at my Quark Wallet at:
http://github.com/HashEngineering/quarkcoinj
http://github.com/HashEngineering/quarkcoin-wallet

The various hash functions in Java are found here:
http://www.saphir2.com/sphlib/

For DarkCoin and any of its clones or "brothers," look at how Quark handles the block hash function (it has a Java and Native version).  The code from the second link has all the other hash functions that need to be added to X11.

However, do not fork my Quark wallet or java libraries for any of the X11 coins.  Quark is unique in that it has this :

Code:
static const int64 COIN = 100000;
instead of this:
Code:
static const int64 COIN = 100000000;

And that will cause a lot of problems, as much of the code for displaying coin values has been changed to handle this difference.  It would be better to import the Hash parts of the code to from Quark while using a different base library such as bitcoin or my digitalcoin.  First work on the Java version, then take the hashblock.h file and make the native version to speed up the sync process and save battery usage.

To my knowledge, I am the only one to fork the bitcoin app to use a different hash algorithm since the Litecoin Wallet dev did the scrypt version.  If I can do it, others can too.
