    Hi, I have an iphone4 running 7.1.2 JB I've been trying to install the find my iphone app from appstore just doesn't allow me as I get the 'only runs on ios 8' error.
    Is there a way to download the ios7 version of this or any other alternatives?
    I lost my other phone so can't really install a third party app on it to track it down.

    PS: I checked it from icloud on web it's in the house but I need some sort of tracker to find it's exact spot?

    Cheers

    If you haven't "purchased" it yet ($0.00), you need to buy/download it from iTunes first to tie it to your account.

    Then you can download it with iOS 7, 6, etc.

    It won't let you buy an app if you're not running the minimum iOS version for the current app.
