Android Crosswalk list of unstable devices.

Hi,

I have released a game (Intel XDK, CW14) to Google Play. I started to recieve a lot of good ratings but also a lot of bad ratings which were caused by technical issues people experienced. I've noticed that most of them have same mobile devices so I understood that some devices have problems with running my game even tho the game itself had no bugs.

So I started to disable devices one by one in Google Play. In the beginning I had to ban whole Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 family, and then other devices.

Is there a list of devices which are not compatibile/working properly with Android Crosswalk so I could disable them all in Google Play?

I know there is a Chromium blacklist implemented, but as far as I know this only disables WebGL support on blacklisted devices (BTW: is this list published somewhere so I could take a look?).

I am really trying to use C2 to make mobile games but it's not possible to push your app on TOP 10 when you recieve a lot of bad ratings. And the pretty sad fact is that it is not a gameplay fault but a technical issue I am not able to fix. So banning those "bad" devices should be a good workaround for now.

Thanks!

I assume this may happen as there are less standards then ios. Thanks for confirming this. I suppose I would put system requirements in your mobile game descriptions or ask friends to test your games on different android devices. Then you can state what devices were tested somewhere.

There are thousands of Android devices. I don't think asking friends is a serious step to do. I believe there should be some official Crosswalk blacklist :/.

Galaxy Trend Plus has also big problems with running Crosswalk apps. Whole screen is blinking - not playable.

Is there anyone else with such problems? Or is it my app problem? Maybe we as a C2 community could make such a list together? Please share any known device/crosswalk problems.
