At present Android doesn't support SVG..... but you may Expect in the feature... any thing is possible because of Android's open-sources feature...!!!

Does Andriod Support SVG


As somebody else pointed out, Android has no SVG support today.

There are two possible places where SVG support might arise. Eventually, WebKit will support SVG, meaning Android would have SVG support through WebKit and the WebView widget. Or, SVG might be supported by the 2D graphics API for drawing on a canvas.

Hi,

There is an SVG Tiny implementation (free SVG viewer for Android) based on SGL 2D library.

Check for details here

It is something fresh, so I can not comment how it works

Webkit already supports SVG (Safari, Chrome). Unfortunately, Android specifically disables SVG from the build step of Webkit

I have ported libsvg to Android, to raster SVG graphics to a Android canvas... Requires NDK to build.

The code can be found through https://code.launchpad.net/libsvg-android

Please note this is a Free Software library (under various licenses, important parts under GPLv3) so play nicely and respect the "Intellectual Property" of others...
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
