AppWorld select the lowest OS or current OS?



I'm going to relase multiple filebundles to support multiple OS (thanks to the "simplified" BB ads requirement). My question is like this:


I created 4 filebundles for os specific (4.5, 4.6, 5.0, 6.0) and select all devices for every filebundles. Will AppWorld detect the device OS and point it to the related filebundles or it will automatically direct the device to the lowest OS that the device supported?

i.e Bold9000 with OS 5.0 - will download 4.5? or 5.0?


Why I asked is because, like Bold900, there are some with OS5 and some with OS4.6. If my filebundles 4.6 and 5.0 both have Bold9000 selected, which one it will be downloaded? Based on the device on the OS, or the lowest OS the device can support?

Re: AppWorld select the lowest OS or current OS?

App World will serve the correct version based on the device OS. For example Bold with OS 5.0 will get the 5.0 version, Bold with OS4.6 will get the 4.6 version.
