Because of the different implementations not only for different manufacturers but also for different devices of the same manufacturer we cannot say exactly which devices are supported by SiDiary. There is one major requirement, Android 2.3! But perhaps another user has already confirmed your device to be supported by SiDiary? Just take a look into our compatibility list. Of course you can use the adware version and check if SiDiary will run on your specific hardware without the need of purchasing the package!
If you are using SiDiary on a device type that is currently not listed in the compatibility list it would be great if you would spend a few seconds for adding this device!
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!
