Immediate sound feedback on Android

Hello Roger,

I've noticed the delay of sounds iOS with the first sound played in a stack…. it doesn't seem to matter which sound is played first, it's always delayed. But, from that point forward all sounds play immediately.

So, I've included a sound file that is a half second of silence and call it with the open stack or open card handler. Perhaps this will help with Android, too. I've not built for Android, so this is just a guess.

be well,
