Resolve compatibility issues for the Android version you use
About This Video

- Collect data on your applications usage, market share, and crashes to your hand on the pulse of your application
- Use A/B testing to solve compatibility problems for specific Android versions or devices
Android fragmentation is the most horrible thing in an Android developer's life. A new version is released each year and year after new release gains less than a 5% market share. Though Google is doing great work in providing Android developers with support libraries, there are still lots of compatibility issues.
This course will help you to make your Android apps backward-compatible and we cover common issues faced by developers in Android. We develop in Java using all its support libraries to show what they are and how they allow us to fight most compatibility issues. We build a simple application that will allow us to track car fill-ups and review gas stations.
During this course, we take a closer look at uses for compatibility libraries, walk through its most popular pivots, and skillfully resolve them. Lastly, we explore a few tools for a more effective market understanding and investigate crashes and A/B testing.
