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.

Simple demo:

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 for the links.

So the question should be, what are these 2 doing that companies like Korg can't? Do they run a specific audio engine (like the second link states, even if it is still unreleased), or is it something else? I read an interview with a Korg exec last year where he said Android was (at the time) a non-option for them cos they couldn't get past the latency issues.

I can't remember the name of the piano app I tried (it was free and available on both ICS and iOS), but it wasn't as good as the one you linked on Android, but was smooth on iOS (ipad). Whether that's an issue with the program or the platform, I don't know. I just told it like I played it.

But that youtube video still has noticeable latency problems. Not nearly as bad as the one on the tablet posted above, but still not good enough.

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