 What are the stricter requirements? Related to SDK version?

 Considering all the limitations we have with supporting old code, I am
 happy to replace the current app with a very simple "You must upgrade, go
 here" type app. We can offer both a link to Google Play, F-Droid, and to a
 direct APK download.
