Touching an object in a tweened animation?

 I'm having trouble porting a simple game I developed for the iPhone
over to Android. The game has an animated ball which moves from Point
A to Point B. The user must touch the ball before it reaches point B
or lose the game. This was easy to implement on the iPhone using Core
Animation since I could locate the current position of the ball by
accessing its animation layer. In Android, I attempted to recreate the
game using tweened animation and represented the ball as a Drawable.
My issue is that I can't determine if the user is touching the spot
because the Drawable apparently bounds do not update as the ball
visually moves - making the program think the ball is always in its
original position. While searching these forums I saw an Android team
dev. confirm that you can't get the current location in a tweened
animation but offered no solution for a workaround. Can I accomplish
this on the Android using my current approach? If not, what approach
should I use?

Best regards,

I saw the warning when we upgraded our app about the reviews and
ratings being temporarily reset when you do an upgrade.  Can someone
at Android comment on how long it will be before a fix is pushed that
will merge the old comments and ratings with the new ones?

Also, the download count was reset and it was not mentioned in the
warning message.  I assume that too will be merged, is that correct?
