foundation for apps compatibility

Hello guys,

I started using foundation 5 a few months ago, so far I'm loving it! =)

I'm about to start developing a new app. This app will be released to ios, android and windows phone 8.1. I just found your new front end framework, foundation for apps, and I'm considering using it.

The main problem so far is the compatibility table: http://foundation.zurb.com/apps/docs/#!/compatibility

Only supporting Android 4.2 and above seems a little unrealistic.
There are plenty of devices only with 4.0 and 4.1.

What are the main reasons to not fully support Jelly Bean and Ice Cream at all?

Does it work, but with some limited features?

Will they be supported in a feature release?

Can someone pacify my mind.

Thank you.

The only thing I can guess is that it shouldn't be a problem of Flexbox, as Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 all support the same specification of Flexbox.

But I'd also be glad to know what can I disable in FA to make it working at least on Android 4.1.

According to can I use http://caniuse.com/#feat=flexbox flexbox works in 4.1. We tested on Android 4.2 + phones so we know it works on those. Flexbox is the only limiting factor.

So "Android 4.2+ (Tablet & Phone)" we see here: http://foundation.zurb.com/apps/docs/#!/compatibility is just because it wasn't tested on Android 4.1 yet?

Not supporting 17.4% is different from not supporting 38.7%!!

Does any one already tested it on 4.1?
