I've had several users report success in using various microphones plugged into
their Android device, with these adapters:
I haven't tested that, but I think that it should work with a guitar.

There's no plan for this AFAIK.

This is entirely up to you of course, but I think that there are some
compromises. I am not sure that it would work in this case, but for example, one
could consider releasing an LV2 plugin under the GPL, and make a paid version
for Android which includes a nice UI. Fancy UIs can involve costs, such as
working with a professional designer, etc..

Some app developers accept donations. It's even the case of some of the most
popular Android music apps. They usually release the app freely, and they have
another paid "app" which actually provides nothing but a way to donate.

So far, I've had my intern select more "generic" effects, such as reverb,
compression, delays, etc.. It needs some more work on the guitar side.

Latency is terrible. Expect about 100ms for input and for output as well. This
situation is one the main reasons why we created the Andraudio mailing list ,
dedicated to audio development on Android, but also possible audio stack
In the current situation, applying effects in realtime isn't possible on Android
because of such latencies. But it's of course possible for post-processing, and
that's what I'm working on.
The quality can be rather good. It's nothing like desktop gear, but it's ok for
composing on the go, to catch ideas whenever/wherever they come from, record a
piece of guitar, add some effect, and send it right away to your band...
