Hi,

Can you set up Android Studio to be backwards compatible, i.e. can I import my current apps and still have them working on Android 4.1 phones?

Thanks,

Frank

This really depends on the features your apps are using. If your app has features that are in version 2 of android. You may well target version 2 as minimum SDK version.
And you would be able to ship the app for version 2 and above.
However, if features used in the app are the ones added after version 4, you would not be able to ship your app for lower versions.
