Cool beans. I understand this is a school project so you probably
have specific deadlines and requirements, but just so you know I am
already working on adding encrypted note support to Tomboy, with
strong integration in Snowy (the server that runs Tomboy Online).
Details of my plans are available here:
If you'd like to work together on that, it would probably lead to a
better and more widely-used solution, compared to each of us working
on separate approaches.

I'd recommend using LGPL to match Tomboy's license, if there is any
chance that you want your code to end up upstream.

I would strongly recommend that you work with the Tomdroid team
instead of starting a new Tomboy-on-Android project.
As for iOS, there is currently no native client that I'm aware of, but
Snowy has (still in its early stages) an HTML5 offline-capable mobile
app using jquery-mobile that is meant to fill that niche. If this is
interesting to your team, I'd be happy to work together on finishing
Good luck on your project,
