Python-for-android now supports Python 3 Android apps! This naturally includes Kivy, but also should work for anything else you can package with python-for-android, such as apps made with PySDL2. Using Python 3 remains experimental for now, it works but doesn’t yet perform all possible optimisations and hasn’t been as widely tested as Python 2. However, there should be no extra application requirements (beyond actually being written for Python 3), and the remaining issues and optimisations are being worked on.
