    I recently received an itunes gift card and purchased a whole load of games and apps that I've had my eye on for a while. However, two apps, VLC and Bit.Trip Beat will not sync to my 8GB iPhone 3G.

    The error is "The app 'VLC' cannot be synced to this iPhone, it is not compatible with this device" and then it says this error occurred twice, also with the game.

    I am running iTunes 10 on the most updated version of 10.6.3 Snow Leopard, my iPhone 3G is running 4.1 completely unjailbroken.

    Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

    Apple and developers need to do a better job with app requirements.
