I'm using LibGDX and flixel-android to build a Desktop/Android game. It feels like there should be a way of checking to see if you're currently being run on an Android device, the Desktop, and so on, but I can't find it anywhere. Am I supposed to just pass it down from the individual launchers? Surely LibGDX can just tell me?

I think you're after Application querying

switch(Gdx.app.getType()) {
   case ApplicationType.Android:
       // android specific code
   case ApplicationType.Desktop:
       // desktop specific code
   case ApplicationType.WebGl:
       /// HTML5 specific code
}

Magd's code may have worked at one stage, it didn't with my version of GDX, or certainly not my implementation anyway. I had to change it as follows:

switch(Gdx.app.getType()) {
       case Android:
           // android specific code
           TouchPadController.createTouchPad();
       case Desktop:
           // desktop specific code
       case WebGL:
           /// HTML5 specific code

}
