Latency on android is still horrible. It needs to be fixed to make music on the platform.

Jelly Bean fixed audio latency, already. But there are still some room for optimations.

Latency only affects the ability to use the touchscreen for real-time performance. That's only one of several ways to make music. Anyone that has used generative music apps, hardware step sequencing, tracker software, or a sequencer's arrangement grid knows there's "more than one way to skin a cat".

A year and half ago I made a damn good Android album using mostly step sequencing apps: http://cooloutmusic.com/album/the-rise

With that said, Android's latency woes (and subsequent lack of mainstream music app development) are a recognized issue within Android community...even at Google. Jelly Bean brought many improvements to android audio including much lower latency (from 100ms to 12ms on some devices). It looks things are on the right path. If you have a newer device (like a Nexus 7), I think FL Studio Android is going to rock and perhaps more established audio companies will start supporting Android. Until then I'll just keep making music and supporting mom-and-pop developers.
