    I'm thinking that a single app with both 32 & 64 bit support would be most beneficial as you wouldn't need to update 2 apps every time you make a change and/or need to push it to PlayStore. After awhile, it would possibly become unnecessarily time consuming. You'll thank yourself for it if you do it that way vs supporting 2 apps that essentially do the same thing. Just have the app make an initial check for the bit support on device (1st opening) and let it proceed from there.. In probably the next 5-10 years (generously), 32bit ANYTHING will be archaic and not used due to security concerns. You'll be on the easy path by only having to remove the line for initial support check when you feel ready.. Good luck with your app :cool:

    Hey, like bcrichster said i suggest too to have a single application with both 32 and 64 bit support, specially if you update often your app and also if your APK file is lightweight. Good luck ;)
