Subject Re: [firebird-support] Firebird & Android
Author Ivan Arabadzhiev
Just my opinion on the subject but direct db access from a mobile device is a bad idea. For a number of reasons - shaky connections, extra care while doing local sync (if you do), longer transactions (while the server waits for the app and network latency) - to name a few.
If you have a choice - go with some middleware

There is which is a port
of Jaybird for android.

However depending on the context the application is going to be used in,
you might want to consider keeping access to your Firebird database
purely server side and provide a web service (eg a RESTful service) to
be used by the application.
