I come here today to discuss a current issue with App Inventor, that is supporting older versions for Android. In some peoples eyes, working on older versions can be a life saver, this way you can continue to get more downloads on your apps. However, the main problem is working to keep these alive because you have to always monitor branch changes (for example, adding a new block to App Inventor. It could be catastrophic for older versions of Android).
I feel as if I am ready to take on the change to supporting the minimum API as recommended here (Android 5.0; API 21). There's a possibility that with this change, code can be reduced and there would be less to worry about. So what do you think about this possibility? How will you be affected? Let me know!
