See http://pidgin.im/pipermail/support/2012-July/012034.html for the latest
answer to a common and similar answer regarding Pidgin on Android (maybe it should be
on the FAQ or even on the downloads page, because we are getting asked that a lot).

Regarding Pidgin on the iPhone, that will even more of a problem, due to the
restrictive terms of the iPhone App Store, which prevent GPL-licensed programs:
