Astrospheric runs great on thousands of different devices and software configurations. This document describes which configurations are officially supported, meaning Astrospheric LLC will build features, test, and actively work to fix issues found or reported to us. The majority of Astrospheric users fall into a supported configuration. The information provided applies only to the latest version of Astrospheric.
Unsupported configurations will still get issues fixed when reported, however Astrospheric LLC prioritizes fixes based on the percentage of its user base in the reported unsupported configuration. For example: Issues reported for Astrospheric on Android 5.1 would be low priority since less than 0.5% of customers use this configuration.
Note that some Astrospheric unsupported configurations are no longer supported by Google (or the vendor that shipped Android) or Apple. Issues reported in these configurations are very difficult to fix, and sometimes impossible to fix if the issue is within the OS or OS supplied SDK.
