Hello Developers, I'm curious... Is an application like this possible with Android devices?

- I'm not sure if I understand the details in how the app works, but the Android API for touch events include values for touch area size and pressure. If it actually returns usable value depends on the phone model and the capabilities of the digitizer.Jun 20, 2013
- Touch area and axes data are available (see MotionEvent.getSize, .getAxisValue) and usually works well, on the other hand android have a lot of issues with audio pipe (especially with latency) so application like that'd be hardly usable.Jun 20, 2013
- The orphion? Sure, but with the latest version of Android there's too much delay between touching the screen and the app responding.Jun 20, 2013
- Orphion - Introthis is a demo video of the Orphion , strange that Apple would restrict this API.
Art Flow is an amazing app, I've used it for about two weeks now. I've been using synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machine apps on my Nexus 7 and most apps work great, if the app is written to take advantage of OpenSl ES (Android 4.1)

But on topic: I've of course watched I/O talks about audio, the key here is "on my Nexus 7", the Android team done tremendous job (thanks
) but final result depends on device drivers which are outside Google control. I'd really like to make some high quality audio application for android but for now we are not there yet.Jun 20, 2013

- truth be told, last time I experienced with apps like this was on 4.0, and I've recently read some pieces from "professional musicians" claiming that Android os 'too slow' to be used properly.Jun 20, 2013
- I've heard those claims also but I don't believe them. From my own experience and from the thousands of positive comments and ratings in the Google Play Store for some music apps, it can't be all that bad.Jun 20, 2013
