 Is it possible to install an application that requires external
libraries in a device without external libraries installed disabling
associated functionality in Android 1.5?
For example, I've an application with multiple activities. Only one
activity is a MapActivity, it requires Google API. Can I disable
MapActivity when it is not supported by the device and let the user
install the application?
