I think entries of the form
%%(org-class 2013 1 7 2013 4 27 2) 12:00pm-01:15pm TITLE
show up on MobileOrg.

I have org-mobile-agendas set up to 'default and they do for me.

Also the synchronization with Google Calendar is quite good in Android, you
can let then Google Calendar handles the remainders in your phone.
