When trying to make a transaction on a boundContract with geth-api through the library of @karalabe. I am missing a way to get the signer. I only see the interface for signer in the aar but no way to get a implementation of it.

java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

You can create an implementation of Signer that uses an AccountManager to sign a transaction with.

Here's a sample which assumes your AccountManager contains already unlocked accounts:

final AccountManager am = new AccountManager(this.getFilesDir() + "/keystore", Geth.LightScryptN, Geth.LightScryptP);

Signer mySigner = new Signer() {
    @Override
    public Transaction sign(Address address, Transaction transaction) throws Exception {
        byte[] signature = am.sign(address, transaction.getSigHash().getBytes());
        return transaction.withSignature(signature);
    }
};

And this one uses password strings instead:

final AccountManager am = new AccountManager(this.getFilesDir() + "/keystore", Geth.LightScryptN, Geth.LightScryptP);

Signer mySigner = new Signer() {
    @Override
    public Transaction sign(Address address, Transaction transaction) throws Exception {
        byte[] signature = am.signWithPassphrase(address, "password", transaction.getSigHash().getBytes());
        return transaction.withSignature(signature);
    }
};
