Android FAQ

Why is your SDK only compatible with Android 15+?

Our Android SDK is limited to 15 or above for technical constraints. At the time we made this decision, only 4% of the Android Market is below this API level.

You can ignore the limitation, but we can’t guarantee that it will work properly and do not officially support or test the SDK in this configuration ourselves.

How can I build my own Android UI on top of Sunshine Conversations?

If you want to build a fully-custom UI for your messaging interface, you can easily create one using Sunshine Conversations to manage message sending and receiving.

You’ll want to look at Conversation.java & Conversation delegate detailed in the Android SDK Reference.

How do I set the ConversationActivity to Portrait-only mode?

To do so, you’ll need to create your own activity that extends ConversationActivity.

Once you’ve created your own activity, ensure that it’s launched when a push notification is received.
