Hi Nick!

Sorry, we don't yet. Our current roadmaps has us using Orbot with Tor
Browser for Android for the first alpha-release (this is scheduled
for release in two weeks). After that release, we'll begin integrating
tor directly into the Android app. I was thinking we'd begin evaluating
the API at that point. So, with that said, I think we can start giving
you some feedback by the end of this month, and in September. Is that a
reasonable timeline?
