Created attachment 611872 [details] [diff] [review] patch v.1 The android appshell is filtering events. we added this as a work around for mwc. the event queue was being flooded. Since, we moved to only listening to events at a fixed rate of 100ms. We no longer need to filter. If we continue to filter, web apps like: http://people.opera.com/richt/release/demos/orientation/artificialhorizon/ will be very jerky.
