wxWidgets on MacOS have some issues, The latest stable don't even compile out of the box on Snow Leopard. I don't think that's is "quite" stable.
I am sorry, but you are wrong. We build on Snow Leopard all the time (we do build with 10.4 SDK but that's done for backwards compatibility). wxWidgets 2.8 is quite stable on a Mac and works well.
2.9 svn tree is not quite fully baked (too bad, because I'd like to switch to it) but it is getting better.
That said, I'd like to note that wxWidgets is primarily a UI framework and should, ideally, be used as such. Using it for more than that, imho, is sub-optimal and will probably create issues down the road.
Anyway, that has nothing to do with Android. Until such day as Google
decides to provide Android with a native (i.e. accessible from C) user interface, there is no option for wxWidgets on it and no need for it either.
And because of how different UI and interaction is on mobile devices from non-mobile, it probably wouldn't help even if it was available.
I think one important aspect of starting a new project is to evaluate your "core technologies", building blocks for what you'd be doing. These are the things you carefully pick so that they can take you forward far enough without limiting too much what you do and with understanding that you will have to stick to them, the further you go. Because of that, it's always a good idea to not put all your eggs in one basket, and build on 2-3 core
technologies (or a dozen, if you can afford it) so they can be gradually replaced or changed. If you center your project on a single
technology/library/toolkit it becomes dependent and difficult to move elsewhere. [soapbox off]
