you could use a USB Audio Interface and a USB OTG cable. have a look at this post for more info. – allerdings Jan 10 '14 at 12:46

You can use any ordinary microphone that uses unbalanced connectors with suitable adaptors like this 3,5mm one. However, the resulting quality will depend on the DACs of the device and the application used, an external mic can only do so much.
