PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Exactly six months ago, Eric Schmidt made a remark that in the near future, developers might want to focus on Android first, instead of iOS. While developers haven't moved to Android-first, iOS-later en masse, there's no denying that we're seeing more and more former iOS exclusives move towards Android.

I keep hearing about how developpers of music apps never even give a look at Android because of "latency issues" - but excuse me, I am completely clueless, what is it exactly? I never had any problem playing audio files, streams or fiddling with the few audio generators for android.

So, what is it? A urban legend, or something for which someone can provide a real, practical proof to show me?

As for personal experience; try getting one of those piano apps and swipe your finger across the keys. That's basically the problem. It's not really a problem with Honeycomb/Gingerbread or prior version either. I've experienced on ICS with my Galaxy Nexus.

Google says it's an issue with the hardware. Hardware makers say it's an issue with Android. I'm guessing it's more probably the latter.

Thanks a lot, I'll check with my two Android phones (a Galaxy S with CM9 and an unmodified HTC One S).
