    Apple is now forcing iPhone users to liability up to 3.1 to gain access to new applications.

    That's because Augmented Reality APIs are only in 3.1.

    or perhaps there are new features in 3.1 that are not in 3.0 that this app needs perhaps?? :rolleyes:

    No one is forcing you to do anything. Dont upgrade: dont get app. The app needs the new software to work.

    1) STOP SHOUTING IN YOUR TITLE
    2) Get over it, my old PPC iMac cant run Snow Leopard. Some of my desktop apps don't run in older software versions. Technology advances. Progrmas/features dot always support legacy code. If you MUST have a new app, update your iPhone system software. But Apple isn't "forcing" you to do anything.

    The application is "forcing" you to upgrade, not Apple. But that's just because certian apps require 3.1 to work.

    whoa, don't lump us all with the OP. I upgraded to 3.1 the day it came out.

    and OP, why does it matter that you have to upgrade to 3.1? apple would only release an update if it would improve on the last one

    That is an incorrect statement. Yelp's augmented reality works perfectly in 3.0.

    They just chose to make the app 3.1 compatible... it's totally up to the devs.

    Actually, you're wrong. Apple introduced a bunch of augmented reality APIs in 3.1. There were no previously available augmented reality APIs.

    I could quote so many but mostly everyone hit the nail on the head. You want new feature, upgrade. Apple is forcing anyone to do anything...

    Regardless, I have 3.0 installed and am using Yelp's augmented reality just fine.

    The Update 3.1

    The people prefer to remain in the version 3.0 has a powerful primary reason ... THE TETHERING

    And that's fine.

    But you have to make a choice between tethering and the new features in 3.1.

    That's not anyone "forcing" you to do anything. It's just a choice. Pick one.

    Yelp's app used undocumented APIs and so was in violation of the SDK agreement, though Apple seems to have let it slide. The actual, documented, legitimate AR APIs, which these apps are using, are in 3.1.

    There have been OS requirements for a long while now... I'm pretty sure 2.X can't run all the apps in the apstore either. :p

    Agreed. OP, take off the tinfoil hat, there is no grand conspiracy here.

    Did Apple make the app? No. So how is Apple making you upgrade?

    Please, THINK. Because when people make statements as such....well it makes them look really stupid. Really.

    So just update to 3.1? 3.1 and > support augmented reality. Just re-jailbreak..

    Jailbreaking isn't officially supported, so how could you expect to not have to redo your settings? Nothing that isn't supported will be as easy to do as those things that are officially supported.

    I agree.

    Seems no matter what happens, people are going to bitch. All about the smallest and most petty things. Next we will be hearing about how some apps are not available for the 3G. Then they become available and they now whine that they are slow and unusable.

    Gee, I WONDER WHY?:rolleyes:
