No, I haven't tried to port Chirp to Android, but I've thought about it.
The trouble is that Chirp is written in Python so not a single line would
run on Android without being ported, and further its GUI is pygtk, so would
need to be rewritten for the Android GUI (not just a port). The resulting
software would resemble nothing of Chirp except the concept.

This to me seems much more useful than Chirp-for-Android.
