a simple wiki syntax, but has two caveats though:

If you prefer open source web apps for your mobile notebooks (and you
can work always-online), DokuWiki is worth a look. Try out DokuWiki's
sandbox page https://www.dokuwiki.org/wiki:sandbox in Firefox's Web
Developer Toolbar's "Responsive Design Mode", or try that URL directly
in a handheld browser. The default theme was improved about a year ago
to better handle small screens.
DokuWiki also requires you to edit page source code in directly its
lightweight markup language, when you are in Edit mode.
(Note, DokuWiki is completely incompatible with Zim when freshly
installed; I'm just mentioning that it exists.)
A couple of years ago an even more simple wiki app for Android - Ema
was made open source; I've looked at the code, and have wondered if it
could make a starting point for an app for zim notes.
VBJ thanks for pointing that out. Just from the screenshots, it looks
decent, and if it is based on Markdown, perhaps it could be made
compatible with Zim. Either someone has to port Zim's reading/writing
code to Ema's application language (Android Java?) and its internal
object model, or we have to wait until Zim has direct support for
Markdown storage. But it's not impossible.
If I had to have access to my Zim notes on a phone, I would do something
1) Regularly, with a script or a manual action, I'd export my Zim
notebook as HTML to a password-protected web-accessible folder anywhere.
2) When on the go, take new notes using the phone's built-in memo tool,
and transfer them to Zim at the end of the day.
