Awesome! Now we're see real innovation in helpful, productive ways from Android developers, good job!

I find this to be a significant achievement and intergrated, native support will turn our mobile devices into engines of productivity and creation.

Ok, maybe I'll try this. Sounds awesome! I always wanted to be able to overlay my PowerAMP widgets.
