There is this port (link to play store around the botton of the page) :

I never used it, nor the other Android apps below, so I cannot really 
comment much. As far as I know, it uses the GNUbg code for cubeless 
evaluations, may have some changes in the cube handling, and of course a 
totally different GUI.

It is (or was, there doesn't seem to have been much change for 3-4 
years) developed independently from GNUbg. You'll have to contact its 
authors at https://alcacoop.it/ for support or if you wish to commission 
features or improvements.

Among alternatives, Backgammon NJ 
and XG mobile 
are apparently well regarded.
