One of the reasons I love LilyPond is that I can already notate music
on Android (or iPad) or anything that has a simple text editor. In my
case, since I use Dropbox and the Android Dropbox app, I can pull up
lp source files on my Nexus One, edit them, then ssh into my main box
with ConnectBot, render the source file, and the PDF is already ready
on Dropbox for viewing on the phone.

There are similar apps on the iPad, too, complete with Dropbox integration from plain text editing. I'm actually starting to use that on my iPad to jot down ideas.
