Limiting app to specific phone / resolutions

my app is geared for a specific resolution, is there any proper way to limit the device to a set of phones that support that resolution? When submitting the app, there was a field for that and I have selected only the phones it should run on. 

 

Would there be anything i need to do in the ALX file or perhaps even program an alert to tell people that download and run the app with a non-compatable phone?

thx!

Re: Limiting app to specific phone / resolutions

In the future, i will add a new set of images for different resolutions and load according at runtime, but right now i want to limit screens other than the one I have designed for. My app is 100% graphics for backgrounds and images so i'm really locked into specific resolutions.

Re: Limiting app to specific phone / resolutions

You can check the screen resolution at startup and decide if you want to support that resolution or not. You can even display an error dialog to the user.
