Mobile technology is a fast moving area and this list is subject to change over time as new versions of each operating systems and device hardware becomes prominent in the market. Our general rule is to support the latest two major versions of mobile Operating Systems and Browsers, however we temper this with market realities. One such reality is the slow uptake of new versions of Android, in this case we continue to test across the latest three major versions.

Android Native Apps
Supported Android Versions are Android 7.1 and above.
Due to the high number of Android devices in circulation, we have to nominate a subset on which to physically test. Our selection is based on some of the most popular devices sold.
If an Android device is running Android 7.x or below, the Google Play Store will display a message to user, telling them that their device is not compatible with the app.
The Thrive WebApp is compatible with a range of modern browsers, however the following subset of configurations is explicitly supported and tested. Unless specifically stated, the latest version of each browser is officially supported.
