They went iOS 5 only? How silly.

Not a problem for me personally but the last statistics had iPad/iphone/ipod users at a less than 40% rate adoption rate.

It's not as though a simple game like this requires any features which are only available in 5, so it's purely down to developer laziness.

Won't work on iPhone 3G (yes, I am hideously behind the times...). Be nice if they made it free for iPad too

iPad version not free or not available?

Just my luck: Ticket to Ride Pocket goes free and my iPod Touch is too old. Now Hive is available again (and free) and it's only for iOS 5. My batting average is sucking right now.

Every time there's a major OS upgrade I end up losing stuff even though I choose to backup first. Guess we'll see how it goes this time.

Tip: Still download the free apps while they're free. If you ever upgrade, then you'll have them already, ready to sync up.

Leave a 1-star review, stating that you are upset with the iOS 5 requirement.

I'm no expert on these things but it looks like this free version is compatible with Ipad. At least that's what the iTunes entry indicates. I'm downloading it and giving it a shot.

This is exactly what I ended up doing with both this and for the Ticket to Ride Pocket app: got them both via iTunes on my computer so that if an when I upgrade down the road, I'll have them.

Great minds...

Truth. Download them knowing they won't work, you'll get an error, but you can download them again at any time in the future when you've upgraded your iOS version.

Especially when you consider that this particular app has been on the marketplace previously, and happily ran on iOS 4 back then (in fact, I've still got the original installed on my faithful old 3G...)

Edit: I just read the product description, and see it has asynchronous online play now... I guess they used the iOS 5 game center APIs for that, so maybe the restriction is justified after all.

Right, just keep in mind that you can't download straight to your device if it's not compatible. You have to download it via iTunes on your computer. I make that distinction because I rarely sync my iPod to my computer and almost solely rely on getting things right through the device.

The upside is once you "buy" it on the computer, you don't even need to download it - go ahead and cancel the actual download. Purchased is purchased...

It's not that it doesn't work, it's that you have the crappy low-def version that you can either play in a iPhone-sized window or zoom in, which looks crappy. They really should have made this a universal app (HD on iPads, SD on iPhones/iPods).

I still haven't had the chance to try this out yet, but thanks for sharing! Hopefully the kiddos (and me) will like it once we try it out.
