Plays fine on my iPad Pro 9.7.

However it is a "32 bit" app so shows the warning about slowing down your device. Normally this can be ignored but Apple is dropping support for 32 bit apps with next major iOS update so this will break it.

A word of warning to any potential new purchasers out there ...

I'm keeping my iPad 2 around for exactly this reason. There are many useful apps out there especially in the music creation genre.

I would imagine the dev will update if enough pressure is put on.

(Edit) Good news from the FTL forum, the dev is "definitely" updating it.

No they are not. The next iOS version aka 10.3 will add a new settings menu warning users that it might not work, nothing more, nothing less. For now, there's no reason to think that FTL will suddenly stop working.

Follow me on Twitter for all the latest iOS news. And sometimes more.

That's why I added "major". iOS 11 will not support 32 bit apps and it's not that far away.

10.2 to 10.3 is a "minor release" not a major update.

It is said that 32bit apps doesn't work anymore on ios 10.3, any chance for compatibility update for FTL?

32 bit apps work for 10.3, version 11 will kill them.

As I said a couple of posts ago, the developer will be updating FTL.
