Latency issue in Android ruining music apps?

I had several music apps on my iPhone that were great. Bebot and ThumbJam for music making, and guitar tuner iStrobostomp, especially. These aren't available on Android. I asked one of the devs and they said Android has a latency problem and they won't port their app until it's fixed. I downloaded a bass guitar app as a test and latency was clearly an issue on my Galaxy S3. How is this happening? Will it ever be fixed? Very bummed. Thanks for any comments!
