Android Device API Distribution in Ottawa
My Ottawa Data
I was recently contracted for a small Ottawa exclusive app, and found the install data was markedly different from Google’s global snapshot. Hopefully this helps you make your API choice for local app development:
*Disclaimer: The sample is so small, take this information as is.
One of the biggest choices in Android app development is choosing your minimum API requirement. To help you make an informed decision you can use Google’s Android dashboard that show’s recent snapshots of API distribution: http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html
The Google dashboard is not very region specific, which would arguably make the data pretty useless for local apps. That is why I’m sharing this data. If you have an app with a larger install base, please share your data.
