I am pleased to announce immediate availability of our YouID 1.7.1 app 
for the Android platform. Along side its iOS counterpart, you now have a 
"deceptively simple" Linked Open Data based solution that puts you in 
full control of your digital identity. In a nutshell, YouID provides a 
wizard-interaction based solution for:

1. obtaining profile data from various social media/networking services

2. generating key pairs (public and private)

3. generating an digital identity card (x.509 standard compliant)

4. generating a secure pkcs#12 document for storing your digital 
identity card and its associated private key

5. generating a public artifacts that are semantically linked to your 
local identity card -- in the form of HTML+Microdata, HTML+RDFa, 
HTML+Turtle, HTML+JSON-LD, Turtle, JSON-LD documents

6. generating other relevant artifacts (e.g., vCard) for easy networking

7. saving all of the aforementioned public artifacts to a storage 
location provided by your preferred Web storage provider -- e.g., 
Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Box., OpenLink ODS-Briefcase 
instances etc..

I've published a blog post [1] that delves deeper into what YouID offers.
