Sure there are :)

This is a collection of Android Apps which are open source and you can test them


You don't need an Open Source Android app to test. You can use just about any .apk built for Release [Source]. This is unlike iOS apps that have to be built using a Debug build and have the test framework packaged in [Source].

Tools like Xamarin (free with Visual Studio Community for Windows and Xamarin Studio for OSX) or SeeTest (paid app) only ask for the apk file and runs with it.

I use Xamarin but linked SeeTest as my sources since the docs were easier to find.
