iOS 10 only! Way to get people to buy your products.
I used to love this app. Sure, it was laggy and couldn't stay open in the background to save its life, but was a great alternative to using a web browser and better than what most tech companies offer.
However, it requires iOS 10 to work now. There have been multiple reviews about this, and they just don't want to upgrade. However, my iPod touch 5g physically can't, and so my access to this app is completely cut off now. So Apple, I'm sorry that my device doesn't support iOS 10, so it can't run an online portal. But who's fault is that, really? Also, why would you cut support for older devices when those devices are the ones that this app would have the best use on (I'm more likely to upgrade that someone with an iPhone 7).
Way to go Apple. Your marketing strategies just keep getting better and better…
SOL if you're not on iOS 10 it won't run!! Seriously Apple!?!?
The App Store app is a nice convenient way to look through and order from the Apple App Store. Unfortunately if you're on a device not capable of running iOS 10 or one of the many people that do not yet want to upgrade to iOS 10 then you are F'd. This app will not run on a device running iOS 9 or below. There is no technical reason why they this should be and in my opinion has been done in a sorry attempt to force people in to upgrading to iOS 10. Apple is just shooting themselves in the foot with these tactics. If you have the prior version of the app saved on your computer you can roll back to it.
iOS 10+ ONLY?!! Really apple?!!!
Honestly this is REALLYYY a stupid act that you guys do all the time that as soon as a newer iOS releases you quickly ban the apple store app on previous version and want to force user to update its whole system firmware to a different one just to be able to browse the new products or make a purchase through a simple app which is a most basic feature / ability that an app can offer!!!
I can tell that still over 80% of apps support ios 9 and at least 50% support ios 8. Of course its expected that you (apple) not just dont ban older ios versions, but support them all at least from ios 6!!!!
Now lets say that for technical reason the newet in-app features may not work on older iOS (which I still believe is a joke at least about apple store app due to its basic options), then why not let users to use the latest compatible version as you do on many thousand other apps????!!!!
This is SOOOOOO STUPID and thats all I can say!
