I am developing / working on an app which provides licensed content on a subscription basis. Unfortunately the content I have has a restriction - I can only provide the subscription content on HTC & Samsung Android Devices as the content provider has partnered/licensed agreements with these specific companies. As I come from a business / UI designe background, I lack a bit of needed knowledge & experience on the technical side
If anyone can advise, I needed to know:
1) Is there any way I can restrict the 'premium content' within the application on specific branded devices? For example, if a Motorola user tries to access the content from within the app, is it possible to detect the make/model of their device and block the content? (obviously with a user friendly message)
2) Is there any way I can stop users of unsupported brands from seeing the app in the market place? (feels like a big ask and personally I do doubt it can be done)
Any advice on my questions would be very helpful!
