comment What happens differently when you add a task Asynchronously on GAE?
A normal task will block whatever thread it is running on. In a mobile context, UI events come on the "main" or "UI" thread. Having a UI event trigger some heavy code will block the main thread and the UI will freeze. This is a bad experience. Android has gone so far as to not allow networking from the UI thread. You now have to network asynchronously and the unwanted UI freeze will not be experienced
