Active Frames for Android apps? Update the screen when in smaller tile mode?

Blackberry 10 supports the concept of "Active Frames" for native apps. This is when you swipe up from the bottom of the phone towards the top, and the app is put into a smaller window, but can still remain active and change its view.

 

Right now however, it looks like when this happens for an Android app in the runtime, the Activity onStop method is called, and the screen will not update. This puts Android apps at a disadvantage over native apps.

 

Is there anyway to enable this for Android apps on BB10? Let me know if you've had any success.

Hi Fraggle222 & godwinpinto,

Active Frames are a concept unique to BlackBerry 10, so there is no way to "enable" it for an Android app running on BB10.
