I Belive It Is Android 2.0 And Up. That Is Usualy What My Apps Are. I Could Be Wrong. @amrita and @wei Would Know For Sure!


Thunkable uses the api level for android 4.
That means your device must have android 4 or higher.

Is your and my answer not the same? :joy:


Kind of, I included a quote about the material design :joy:


haha okay :sweat_smile:


If I understand the Android API level documentation correctly, API level 4 corresponds to Android 1.6 Donut.


He said the API level for Android 4, not API level 4.


Thats right. The thunkable apps uses the api level for android 4. :slight_smile:


Version 2.3 is for AppInventor original version, but as Thunkable had added more components and a new design, they had to upgrade their minimum version to Android 4.0, that works with Holo Design, and if you use Android >5.0 you will get a nice MaterialDesign

Also, the respective SDK versions:

Version Name --------- Version Code --- API Version

Gingerbread ---------- 2.3 to 2.3.7 --- 9–10
Ice Cream Sandwich --- 4.0 to 4.0.4 --- 14–15
Lollipop ------------- 5.0 to 5.1.1 --- 21–22


Ahh, Yes. Makes Sence
