Don’t be silly with your mobile platform wish list –


Sometimes I get some really silly requests through as invitations to tender. I recently received such a request from a U.K. Higher Education Institution. Take a look at their compatable device list below.

The service should provide, as a minimum, support for all major smartphone platforms including:

  • Apple iOS 3.x, 4.x and 5.x.
  • Android 2.x, 3.x and 4.x.
  • Blackberry 4.x, 5.x and 6.x.
  • Windows Mobile 5.x, 6.x, 7.x.

In this post on I discuss why it is important to take the time to consider your app release platforms.
