Wish I wish there was a way to parse an app to find minSdkVersion

    At present, the developer has to know the lowest SDK version on which her/his app will run, and it can be a pain to have to trawl through all the libraries you have used to figure it out.
    Or you need to test it on various emulators/devices to find out.
    I wish there was a utility which would check the app and tell you which minSdkVersion to use.
    Guess I'm just lazy...

    i'm sure each programer exactly know when using a future which is not supported by lower sdk
    for example you should know if u are using the new HttpUtils version based OkHttp then your app not supported by Sdk < 11 (requires Android 2.3+)
