Have a look at the "Cutecash" build of GnuCash. You'll find the code in <> and <>. It builds only with CMake, pass "-DWITH_CUTECASH=ON -DWITH_GNUCASH=OFF" in the cmake args. It doesn't support all of the features but I believe that it has enough to make a useful mobile app.

As Adonay observed you'll need to go through the UI to make it adapt to small screens.

Please keep in touch as you work through this and do your work with a view to integrating the build into the mainline GnuCash sources.
