if I write my app for the tour or curve would the application be compatible with either, or would there need to be a separate application for each?

It's all dependent on the OS level.
You can deploy an application on a device that has a OS level >= the JDE level used to create it.
You cannot deploy on an OS level less than the JDE level.
So, pick a JDE level that matches up with the oldest OS level that you plan to support. Our "base" is currently 4.2.1, but we also have seperate builds for 4.5 and 4.7.

If you make a 4.7 build it will be available on most of the recent devices. If you plan to back-support older devices, you should use 4.2 or 4.5. The OS, however, should be consistent across all device types, so if it works on the curve, chances are it should work on the Bold, etc as well. The exception is the Storm -- the touch-screen and orientation detection add new levels of complexity.
