Hi Karen,
It is a companion app, designed to track expenses on-the-go. So it does not
speak GnuCash XML yet.
The idea is that you export the transactions as OFX and then import them
into your GnuCash desktop program.

That said, there is a discussed goal of having the Android app being able
to read the .gnucash XML files at some point (or atleast a subset of it -
only supported features)
Writing to GnuCash XML files will be a bit more challenging since it is
discouraged to manipulate the XML files directly (without going through the
GnuCash C XML API)
