Installed Android program which I created bombs out
I'm taking a chance to post here, and I really hope someone would be able to assist me
It is my first android app.
I have created a very small android app. Basically it consists of a listview with two buttons:
The listview shows our courses. Once clicked, it shows the contents of each course
One button allows me to download a brochure
the other button opens up a form where the user can enter his / her details in order for us to be able to contact him / her
Now I have debugged this app over and over to ensure everything will work fine.
On my AVD ( Samsung Galaxy SII ) everything works smoothly
So, I exported the release build with its signed key, and made it available for download from my website - not the google play store, as I want to gradually release it onto different platforms depending on the amount of downloads I get.
Right, so I download it and installed it on my phone ( Galaxy S II ) all 284 KB of it.
When I attempt to run it, my phone says that the app has stopped working and I must Force Close it.
What can it be?
I know this question seems vague, but perhaps there is a step I have missed.
Any guidance will be welcomed.

Re: Installed Android program which I created bombs out
OK, I managed to install this program onto a Samsung Galaxy S4. It works without any problems.
So, I did some research on the internet and I was told that I should make my minSdkVersion and targetSdkVersion the same. I made them both 9 ( for Gingerbread ), and made the TargetApi :
Still it doesn't work on my Samsung Galaxy S2
There is hope, but I do not know how to make this app more compatible with earlier Samsung ( android ) versions
