Not sure yet what the minimum version will be, it depends on Xamarin as well.

In all honesty, a lot of newer apps are 4.1 and up only as older Android versions lack some of the refinements needed for apps. You may want to follow that trend as I think it'll make your development easier.

I'm assuming the Android app would be another license.  I have no issue with that as this is the best app I've paid for on either platform.

Probably 4.1, that's my current minimum build target.

Yeah, you'll have to buy the app for Android again, I've no way to carry over licenses from iOS to Android.  Given the amount of cash and time this project has sucked up thus far, I'll need that income ;)  I've learned a lot though... for example that developing for Android is quite a bit harder in some ways, even when using a platform like Xamarin.  Memory management, threading and performance are pretty much non-issues on iPhones, on Android these things often need careful attention.

The project has been on hold for a bit, we've hit a few technical snags and I'm busy with other things as well (like stuff that pays the bills :) ).  I'm hoping to be able to deote more time to this project again soon, though.
