Short answer: you can't install it. They've targeted a newer Android API level, which means it won't run on Android Pie (9.0).

Hi Dom,


Thanks for your answer - thats a pity, as they stated IIRC on Indiegogo that it will run on both cosmo and astro  :-(  ... any suggestions for a backup app which run on both devices and transfers the max of data?

Well, I _am_ using an older Astro firmware, and someone on Telegram said it was the encryption signature, part of the app, that failed to work on Cosmo. It could still be the API level, but it also might be that the newer firmware does support Cosmo.

So it could just be me.

I can't provide the APK. I'm just being on the safe side, but I don't want to violate the NDA.
