I have an app that I released a couple years ago (plus another legacy app that I maintain for one of my company’s clients). My game has a long-ish title, but it was fine until some asshat at Google decides that 33 characters is too long. On top of that, every time I’m forced to update the target SDK, I need to spend several hours figuring out a bunch of new build errors. This is not how I wanted to spend my vacation time.

    Google’s definition of “Old API” though is like, 3 months.

    Oh, okay. Admittedly I haven’t done a lot of Android development and didn’t realise how quickly Google deprecate APIs.
