Android Software Product Requirements

The Android operating system is on a wide variety of devices. In fact there are far too many to test and new devices coming out monthly. The models described below are phones and tablets we have run on. Some basic features to look for are:

  • GPS - Most Android devices have an internal GPS but some like the Kindle Fire do not.
  • Bluetooth
  • Android 4.0 or greater is highly recommended. Our programs will work on 2.3 but long term compatibility is not guaranteed
  • A minimum screen resolution of 1280x720. We can work with less but you won't be as happy.
