Re: Develop app for all OS versions

Webworks makes it all fairly easy but owing to the differences in the config.xml you need different versions for different devices (messes me up all the time)


Using other languages is far more difficult as you need different base code for everything


OS5-7 = Java


BB10 = NDK / Cascades


The important thing is that a GMaps app is - basically - supported from 5 up (although 5 has render issues and is awful @ AJAX)


I'd stick to 6+ as by then things got stable and should work in all markets with the one codebase
