Ah - I see! Perhaps check back through your Apple account email for the receipts? Sorry I can't help more!

You know that they will never Update their Apps to 64 Bit? So anybody should know, their "Premium Games" will not run with iOS 11 ... so with no iDevice from september on ...

And in other news Templar Battleforce continues to get updates many months after it's release.

I know which Dev I'd rather throw my money at.

+1!!!

They even make no updates for Unity Games like Qvadriga, because they sold not that many copies ...

I will never spend one Euro for a game which has something to do with Slitherine!

We've answered the iOS11 issue over on our forums, but fundamentally it would mean rewriting the internals of the game, then testing all the (cross-platform) multiplayer for dozens of SKUs. All because Apple want to force people to update their hardware.

I think it is also worth noting that BA released in 2012. So we are not talking about updates 'months' after release.

We really do appreciate how frustrating it is to lose these games. Please remember that these all run happily on all Apple HW, the only change has been iOS.

Cheers

That's really unfair. There are big advantages from not having to support arbitrarily old APIs. Trying to maintain too much backward compatibility was a big problem for Microsoft Windows over the years. The cost of losing some five year old apps is less than the benefit. I'm not faulting you for not making the updates, but the fact that the update is not so easy for you illustrates why supporting the old apps indefinitely is not so easy for Apple.

It would be a more compelling argument if iOS10 (e.g.) didn't already do it. Is it work to maintain a 32bit compat layer? Of course, a not inconsiderable amount either. But pretty much every prior OS has decided that backward compatibility is a good thing, Apple have not, which is fine. I guess the thing that galls most is that they literally put a message in the OS blaming developers. So effectively to save Apple money and time, they throw developers (who, let's remember, have to pay for each year they want to submit and update apps - not a big deal for us but certainly for smaller devs) under the bus for not wanting to spend their time/money.

Your comment is fair, balanced, and considered. Many comments we have had directed to us have been less so...
