Definitely not on the emulator, and not on most phones. Only a couple of
phones have Flash.

In a year's time, it may be that most Android phones have Flash. It's
even conceivable there will be a way to do Flash in the emulator, though
I'm skeptical of that.

 Android has HTML 5 and from what I've seen most of what can be done in
Flash can be done in HTML 5...is it an option for you?

1. Multitasking on Android - Why So Incredibly Bad?

Hello everyone!

First of all, I hope this is at least somewhat on-topic for this
discussion group, as it seems to be the only way to reach Android
developers easily.

The problem I would like to discuss is the way Android handles running
multiple applications at the same time. Take the following scenario,
for instance:

1. Open the browser
2. Open a few links that you want to read later in new windows/tabs
3. Open another app (Say you received an SMS, for instance)
4. Reopen the browser, expecting to continue where you left off
5. Browser has closed all open windows WITHOUT saving the state or
notifying the user

This happens even if you're only jumping between completely Android-
Native apps that came with the OS. There are various other similar
scenarios, but this is easily the most annoying, since it results in
complete loss of stuff I was actually planning on reading later.

Why would anyone consider this to be actual multitasking? If there's
no guarantee that the app you just left will still have the same state
when you come back to it from your other tasks, it's NOT MULTITASKING.

How is it that this is still an issue? We've arrived at Android 2.2,
and we still can't minimize a program without running the risk of
losing everything we just did?

Are there at least plans to integrate proper multitasking in the
future? Or a way to allow users to specifically select tasks that are
not to be killed under any circumstances?
