I can confirm this also works on Android running the old v0.6.1 Pocket Edition apk. That is, the Android Device can connect (join) to the server running Pi Edition.

so if you create a survival server on ios can you play in survival mode on the pi
Not sure about iOS, but flipping the connection direction does not work for Android. If I run the server on the Android device and attempt to join from the Pi, it unfortunately reports Incompatible Server and aborts the connection. In theory someone could patch minecraft-pi to spoof its version and fix this as well, but that would take some investigation.
On the bright side this still enhances Survival Mode on the Pi. With the Survival Mode patch
on the server, you can even kill mobs from the Android phone/tablet, while that still isn't possible in the server window without resorting to TNT.
