    Hi,

    This is applicable only for Target version to API 23 (Android 6.0) – Marshmallow and higher, What can I use for API 21 (Android 5.0) – Lollipop, (Or may be if possible for API 19 (Android 4.4) – Kitkat) onwards?

    Regards, N Baua

    @N_Baua what prevents you from targeting API 23 or 24? You know that Target is different from Minimum Target (means if you target API 23 your app can still run in API 19 or even 17) check this link

    Hi Nadjib,

    I agree, what you have to say, however I want to be on safer side, I have few modules completely re-created when they failed on actual device test. I have few Asus and Older Samsung test devices with KitKat on them which keep me running on all this stuff.

    Life isn't been soft on me lately :) Thanks anyways.

    Regards, N Baua

    Hey guys,

    What you said is nice, but you can't create any design around these packages :/
