NativeApi.InitializeAsync() not really async

See original GitHub issue

Currently NativeApi.InitializeAsync() wraps NativeSdkMethods.Init() to return a Task. However, NativeSdkMethods.Init() does take a while to start (about 300ms on my laptop), blocking the calling thread.

I’d suggest to spin a new thread doing something like this:

return Task.Run(_nativeSdkMethods.Init)
   .ContinueWith(/* error handling */);

Latest docs in release branch now have a note in the getting started guide about needing to wait for a couple seconds or use the method of listening for the DeviceAccess event.

I’d rather document this clearly so users know what to expect.

Hm, that might be the way to go. Document it and then users can either use the event loop if they have it available (optimal), or insert an artificial delay of a second or two that should leave enough time to init (not as accurate, but probably good enough if it’s not feasible to get the event loop).
