Remove Platform.isFlex() from the SDK

Hi folks,

We have just had to figure out the hard way that this function doesn't work on Flex 2 devices. Perhaps instead of this teeny document suggesting we stop using this deprecated function, the function itself should be removed from the SDK so it isn't an issue for other developers?


Thanks!

The entire Platform class was deprecated 2 years ago, as well as the isCloverFlex() method. The deprecation warning in the javadocs state:

/**
 * <b>Please discontinue using this class, it has been deprecated and will be deleted in a
 * future version of the Clover Android SDK!</b>
 * <p>
 * Code which references this class almost certainly will not work on future Clover devices or even
 * slight model variations.
 * </p><p>
 * Clover frequently adds new models for existing devices when shipping devices to new
 * regions. Please use {@link com.clover.sdk.util.Platform2} and/or relevant Android APIs to write
 * code compatible with future devices that may have different screen sizes or hardware features.
 * </p>
 */

We do plan to remove it from the SDK. The process is that we first deprecate to give developers time to migrate. You're right it's probably about time to take some action.

Thanks for this Jeff, I am good at ignoring deprecation warnings due to supporting SDK 17 :)
