Is there a way to (at least approximately) check if an application I have found in Google Play store would work on friend's phone. I'd rather not suggest an app that would not work on friend's phone.
For example is there a way to check if an application would work on Android 2.3, when my phone has Android 4.1.2?
Nowadays Google Play store has (in the web version) "Additional information" section, with table (actually: divs) containing structured information about an app, with the following 'columns': "Updated", "Size", "Installs", "Current Version", "Requires Android", "Content Rating".
While usually the information I want is in "Requires Android" field (e.g. '4.0.3 and up', '2.2 and up') sometimes it is just 'Varies with device', e.g. SoundHound.
