Where did you see the My BMW Remote app for Android? I routinely check Google Play and it is still not available in the U.S. (Apple Only).
I have used this app (from my Ipad) to unlock my wife's BMW when she was on a business trip. She was parked on a hill and sat her purse with key and phone on the seat. Gravity closed the locked door. She was able to call me from a borrowed cell phone and I unlocked the car via the app. Worked great!
