HTC Desire Compatibility?

How difficult would it be to add HTC Desire compatibility to BookShout? I say this not as a gripe, but as a way to simultaneously ask if you guys would, and how long it would take.

HTC Desire HD or if in the US, the HTC Inspire (Same models, different regional names)

    Hi Hank,

    Thank you for your inquiry. It appears that the HTC Desire HD supports Android OS 2. and 2.3. Our Android app only supports OS 4.0 and above. Unfortunately, we currently do not have plans to support Android OS v2.X.

    Hi Bookshout Support,
    I was just wondering if there is any change in supporting the HTCs (Android 2.3)?
    Since there is no chance to get an software update from Google, this means I have no possibility to use BookShout on my mobile device :(

    Hi Mara,

    Unfortunately, BookShout still only supports Android devices running 4.0 and above.

    We appreciate your support!
