Why do you require iOS version 9.0 and above?
Similar to Android we would have preferred to support a larger number of devices but we were limited by the technical capabilities available for current development platforms. Apple is very aggressive with pushing developers and users to their latest versions. Having said that we greatly appreciated many of the time saving features available to developers with the latest version of Xcode and we were able to get the initial release launched in just over 3 months by limiting to 9.0 and up.
Why do you require Android versions 5.0 or above?
We agonized over the decision to drop support for older Android versions since we know many Mustachians are using older devices. Our goal is to reach the broadest parts of the Mustachian community and originally we built the app to support version 4.1 and above. However, we ran into a conflict when we added security (specifically TLS 1.2) when connecting to www.mrmoneymustache.com. Ultimately it came down to a decision of security vs broader support and we chose security.

We will be using this information in an upcoming release to allow you to find others Mustachians with similar interests.
