In case it is Java based, maybe you can make use of (and contribute to)
the APRS parser/encoder which is part of AVRS:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/avrs/

It would be great for the community as well as for the APRS standard to
have a strong multi-platform library which can be plugged into own
projects. Maybe together we can make that vision come true!

However, you should not take the advice too serious. Most of the
feedback I'm getting for APRSdroid is very positive. The only
significant exception are people too impatient to wait for an APRS-IS
passcode.
