Takeaways for developers

You can order Flex (2nd Generation) Dev Kits from cloverdevkit.com for testing your apps. You can also use the emulator.

The Clover Platform class is deprecated. The Platform2 class provides similar functionality and also enables your app to support new Clover devices without any recompiling.

With the Platform2 class, use standard Android methods to discover device features and to support different screen sizes. For example, if a Clover device supports the FEATURE_TELEPHONY system feature, it supports mobile data.

boolean mobileData = context.getPackageManager().hasSystemFeature(PackageManager.FEATURE_TELEPHONY);

Clover will make your apps on Flex (1st Generation) available on Flex (2nd Generation) devices.
