Anyways, i'm going to release it without directCanvas.

There an issue how it won't hide status bar when on start layout, how do i make it complete hide status bar without direct canvas?

@tap - your solution breaks accelerometer input in DC. You guys should really add DC side support for accelerometer since it looks like my hack to work around DC's lack of support is causing problems here.

@ashley Yeah I know it's not a perfect solution. :( But if the game is not using the accelerometer it does help a bit with performance.

I'm going to talk with our DC guys to see if we can add accelerometer support to directCanvas that way we won't need the workaround.

For whatever it's worth, I found this document about directcanvas, and thought it might contain some new information:

Convert an App Using HTML5 Canvas to Use App Game Interfaces
v1.04 : 03.04.2013

Intel changed the name from "directcanvas" to "App Game Interfaces".

@Joannesalfa
Hello, I'm not sure if there are any big changes, since I have never used it before. If you look at the examples they provide in their DirectCanvas SDK, it seems like they might have added support for Android, or at least for some Android versions (there is a fallback in the code).
