Hi Charles,
at the moment there's no such working tool (apart from a very draft I made
some years ago that uses formhub + epicollect + geonode) but the interest
around it is increasing and I'm sure there are other people in the list
that are willing to work on this.

We encourage potential stakeholders to come in!

About your questions:
- you can add google as an optional background in the settings here
https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode/blob/master/geonode/settings.py#L617 using
this doc http://gxp.opengeo.org/master/doc/lib/plugins/GoogleSource.html
- you will have to customize the code of the mapping library which is based
on Geoexplorer http://suite.opengeo.org/opengeo-docs/geoexplorer/. But here
others may help you more than me. :)

>    1. offline collection of arbitrary data via smartphone (tracks,
>    photos, notes, forms)
>    2. sync arbitrary, serialized blob data to server
>    3. handle and store arbitrary serialized blob data in GeoNode (some
>    sub-app)
>    4. webapp interface template to explore / utilize data
> This seems like it would make a good project template ... pull everything
> into a django-app under your geonode instance, including the smartphone app
> template code, and just customize from there.
> Does such a project already exist?  If not, then would it be a good thing?

> I have a couple other questions while here:

>    - what is best way (api?) to capture map clicks?
> Thanks!
