Greetings, all.

Thank you in advance for any explanations you may provide.

Does this manifest entry apply to portrait or landscape?

B4X:
android:requiresSmallestWidthDp="1200"
The Google documentation is not quite clear (at least to me).

http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/supports-screens-element.html

Based on the documentation, this seems to be available for Android > 3.2, but I am not clear on this either???

What other size attributes can be specified for filtering in Google Play? For example, Minimum: 1280 by 800...

Best regards.

Boy, I am batting a 1000 (without the 1) in my recent threads!

Obviously, I am being overly precise with ensuring that apps display well on devices (to avoid the NJDude "1star Ninjas") in as many cases as possible. So, I beg your and the forum members indulgence, Erel. I will rephrase the question more precisely.

What attributes may I set in the application Manifest to exclude devices from seeing my application in Google Play?

Answer 1:
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="16" android:targetSdkVersion="16"/> will exclude any device with Android version < 4.1.2.

@@@@@

I would like to also exclude devices based on their size. The only thing I found was exclusion based on WidthDP (which after I reread the Android documentation means "portrait" width).

B4X:
android:requiresSmallestWidthDp="720"
@@@@@

Any help would be appreciated.

Sandy

PS: I am changing the title of the thread to make it more general
