PhoneGap Android version checker

I am writing this post as part of a course called Mobiilituotekehitys (Mobile development) held by Tero Karvinen http://terokarvinen.com/2012/aikataulu-mobiilituotekehitys-bus4tn008-2

Technical information

The program goes through an if-statement to determine if the version number is accepted, plays the sound and shows the text accordingly.

Notes

On this assignment my task was to create a program using the following API: Media & Device

I used the website http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html to get information about the most used Android version.

I used sound clips found at:

http://soundbible.com/1003-Ta-Da.html and http://soundbible.com/1830-Sad-Trombone.html
