A few weeks go, I posted about adopting an Android 4.0+ only development policy.

Critics were quick to say that "well, you'll only reach half your audience". I disagreed; activations and API version stats do not reflect actual app usage.

And here's some numbers to back my statement.
"500px COO, Evgeny Tchebotarev, told me that “just 16% of users use our app with Android version lower than 4.0, and this number is dropping by around 0.1% every week.”

I've seen similar reports from other devs. Just a reminder, the
#Android  platform version stats do not tell the whole story.
