how does android min sdk and target sdk affect the app? I want it to be available to as many versions as possible.
Please look at this table with a list of sdk versions and Android versions: https://developer.android.com/guide/t...
So setting the lowest value in min sdk version and the highest value in the target sdk will give me the broadest coverage yes?
No, only the newest version of min sdk guarantees you the biggest amount of supported devices. Also, you can select the lowest version of target sdk.
Note: Appery.io supports Android 4.1 – 6.x.
Your app will most likely work on lower Android version but there is no official support from Appery.io
Ok, Unsure what you are saying.
Do you mean I enter the highest version number in the min sdk and the lowest version number in the target sdk?
By the way, the drop down list only goes as far as 5.1 not 6.x
Also Do these setting affect how google play store decides which of your devices are compatible?
You have to set min version in both options to make you application available for the biggest amount of devices
I have search and read the discussions regarding Min. SDK version and Target SDK version and I have not understood any explanation clear.
At the moment the options are Android 4.1.x through Android 7.0.
Can someone clearly explain what the results of setting the min and target SDK.
Ah, yes, that is more clear, thank you.
Sorry for the posting here in too old thread but I think I can get help from this thread because I am also having the same issue with google play store and I am not able to fix it, So if you are able to fix it then please share details and configurations.
Thank in advanced.
