Hi everyone, I want to create an app and publish it to playStore to earn some money. What are the things should I concern before start writing my code?  How should I know which Android version will support my app ?

Thanks.

For the most part, Android Studio will redline anything not in your stated supported version.

As for what to know about the play store. Not much really. You can go ahead and publish a stub application to alpha or beta, to see how the process works. Until you go for public release, it is not really reviewed.

If you are wondering which version to target, take a look at the Android Dashboards to see what percentages of the API versions are in use.  Here's a snapshot for this week:
