I just checked the current “Platform Versions” in the Android Dashboard, as of September 9, 2014 (https://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html#Platform). I added it up and it looks like if I go with a minimum of (4.0.3 - 4.0.4/Ice Cream Sandwich/API 15) I’ll get 88% (87.9) device coverage. That is plenty for my modest ambitions. I’m guessing that the native 11+ Fragment support has better performance than the support library, and that not including the support library will make my apk smaller.
So… If I start the “CriminalIntent” project with the minimum API at 15, am I going to run into trouble following the book’s instructions? Or do I just have to watch for the concessions that covered in Chapter 6 and skip them?
Thank you in advance,
