    As Tenmoc and others have discovered, the spoiler tag fails in the android app

    It just shows the code as follows:
    Code:
    [spoiler="button text"]content[/spoiler]

    That's not how I see it displayed, but you presented another quirk.

    A spoiler tag for the default "Show Spoiler" button text shows to me in the app as...
    * SPOILER *

    Demonstration:
    Show Spoiler
    content

    I don't know of any way to then select or drill down on the spoiler in order to see its content. If I have Edit privilege to the post, then I can choose "edit" and see the spoiler tags and their content. However, this is typically only of value to those who are editing their own posts.

    A spoiler with a special value for the button text shows the tags and content in full as Gargoyle described.
    Demonstration:
    button text (open)
    content


    The additional quirk (not necessarily a bug) that I mentioned above:
    Anything within CODE tags displays the content but does not display anything like "Code:" before it.

    I'm running ICS on a Galaxy SIII. What version of Android are you using?

    Sent from my Droid Razr Maxx using ICS 4.0.4 and milepoint app 1.3.3

    Same experience with my old Droid (version 1) which I have with wifi only with Android 2.2.3.

    I didn't even know there was a spoiler tag...

    It's a nice thing to have in here during the broadcast-delayed Olympics. I kind of wish that it had an icon in the editor menu.
