No it won't Levent, you would need to fork and extend (or use the web client) however unlike the odoo web client it will work offline.  Honestly I find the mobile framework a pig to work with but for certain applications (Delivery Signatures, Expenses, Phone books etc) limited capabilities is fine.

Part of me says one repo for android stuff based on odoo's mobile framework might be better, just because only a few reviewers have done enough work in it to even half know it, plus the way it works to add different functionality, there is either lots of cut and paste for a new app, or extending the existing app or more likely a bit of both.  All the generic mobile framework stuff would be better as a git submodule or subtree so only 1 source of truth to maintain (but due to other parts thats no panacea either).

Plus in general I find they need quite a bit of generic maintenance as new Android versions, flavours and phones come out way more often than Odoo versions.

Hello Jordi,

Is this app works with customizations? To be precise, is it an android app designed to work with "out of the box" odoo expense app or an android app working like a android client (like odoo web client)? Without supporting customizations, such apps will have very limited capabilities.
