Apple Well, it might be safe to say that Apple's own engineers stopped testing their Apple apps with 3.x iOS devices, and have created bugs that make these apps unusable. This is to be somewhat expected, Apple has a track record of not-so-great backwards compatibility (on the Mac), but what we also expected was to not get these broken updates forced to us. It's one thing to stop updating the firmware of older iOS models, and another thing breaking them.

So, in my iTunes, not only most applications get to keep their older versions in the app folder, the ones that do not can be quickly retrieved from the recycle bin, at least in Windows 7. All you need to do is remove the latest version from the app folder, restore the old version (if it is in the recycle bin) and there you have it, back like magic.

I'm not saying it is fine for apple to push updates that will make apps useless, but I am surprised the engineers don't even suggest this fix
