The minimum Bugfender SDK version supported at the moment is 0.8.

Bugfender works with Android SDK version 16 and better, which is present in Android 4.1 or better. Please note TLS 1.2 is also required, which is only present in some versions of Android 4.x. TLS 1.2 is present in Android 5.0 and better.

However if you have an application with a lower Android version you can still integrate Bugfender but disable it for Android versions lower than Android 4.1. You do this by mentioning Bugfender inside conditional code:

if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= android.os.Build.VERSION_CODES.JELLY_BEAN) {
    // only for Jelly Bean and newer versions

Your application will have a minSdkVersion lower than 16, so you will get a compilation error if you try to do this. Add the xmlns:tools namespace and use tools:overrideLibrary to ignore the minSdkVersion reported by Bugfender, like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest package="com.bugfender.sample"
    <uses-sdk tools:overrideLibrary=""/>
