With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) recently developed software that provides new opportunities for Android-based smartphone users to participate in citizen science efforts.

The newly-updated software, called Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing or "BOINC," gives owners of devices that use Android 2.3 operating systems or higher the chance to participate in volunteer distributive computing--that is, donate the excess computing power of their handheld devices to science.

link for further reading is here.
