    Nice touch Apple, thought I'd never see the day.

    Always figured Apple didn't allow legacy devices to download old versions of apps was an effort to basically strong-arm customers into buying new hardware. I guess I was wrong :eek:

    Thanks Apple!

    My niece is still rocking a 3GS.

    She'll be delighted. Unusually considerate move by Apple.

    This works even on original iPhone? This makes iOS 3-5 much more useable.
