i am using the intelXDK to create an APK and when i publish and upload it to GooglePlay the Supported devices list is very limited. and i think it is because i am doing something wrong in the intel XDK. help some one?
You aren't doing anything wrong particularly. You may need to change the minimum API level on the Projects tab for your specific application under the Build Settings panel. Be advised that reducing the API level should be done once you can verify it works successfully on devices that support that API Level.
