Hi,

2 Android apps..

1st Chrome browser, go to Nutcracker's link, and download the list you require,
followed by 2nd Android app.. Google sheets

Alternatively, eBird may be what you are looking for

Obsmapp works very, very well for everything you want to enter in the field. They is a big ‘if’ though: It will not work for those that only want to fill the list without details, because for past observations you need to pinpoint the location on a map, together with the date. It is also not designed to check your list offline in the app (the website serves well for that purpose).

I use Bubo on my I pad
It's free and regularly updates any taxonomic changes
You can also keep different lists

Can't find Bubo on android.

I will play a bit. I think both first options will work. Thanks for the tips.

Edit: The exel list is very confusing. I am not a fan of it. Ebird makes it also difficult to just have a simple tick list.

Try Birdwatchers Diary from the app store. You can amend the list to suit yourself, and is ideal to use in the field.

I can understand why an Android (or for me, iOS) list on your phone is helpful or recording birds in the field, but you need to think about where you want to store your data too - offline or cloud.
eBird stores your observations on its servers, and they are accessible to you via the web - it is the same with Observation.org etc. - ObsMapp is their Android app. As Temmie says, these require you to input more data regarding location, time, because the aim is to share your observations and contribute to citizen science by doing so.
If want an offline list, and want to choose your taxonomy (Clements or IOC) then Scythebill is regularly updated. It doesn't work on Android, and isnt' designed as a mobile app - you'll need a desktop or laptop running Windows, MacOS or Linux, but will import lists from eBird (and suitably configured CSV files from other apps).
Scythebill allows you to put as much or as little information in as you want along with your observations - I used it to consolidate my 'life list' from disparate notebooks, having not kept an up-to-date one for decades.
