Are many Android apps only compatible with Jelly Bean?

Shopping around for a cheapish Android phone but aware that some can only go as high as Ice Cream Sandwich> Are many Android apps only compatible with Jelly Bean?

I doubt it.... but future updates may well become JB-only...
It's probably easier to check what apps you like, and see if the have minimum requirements?

At the moment Android 4.0+ will get you compatibility with all the apps I've ever come across, I'm sure some of the hundreds of thousands of apps on the Play Store are JB only, but it's a tiny minority.

Out of interest, what phones are you looking at? Maybe we could give you a hand with that decision too?
