Status of Android/Java MP Cryptographers

I haven't posted in a while, and no I'm not dead.
I've updated MP Cryptographer Java version to include signing (but not yet de-signing). I'm working on the Android version because my professor seems to not be replying back to me. I have made some progress and have now started working with the sensors.
Sensors Screen (Activity)
An accelerometer is not a 3D compass like I had thought. In a sense it is, because it uses electromagnetic fields to determine distances. When you move an object, not everything moves at once, and changes in the electromagnetic field occur when spacing change and that's how it can calculate acceleration.
This will be used with random number generation.
