pgrouting runs on the PostgreSQL and PostGIS database, and I don't know
that those have been ported to Android. ;)
The typical way to use pgrouting for a mobile app, is to write a web
service which uses pgrouting (on the server, which runs a webserver and
PostGIS), and write your mobile app to query that web service.
This does mean that your mobile app needs to connect to the Internet and
to your service, in order to get directions.
