iPhone 4 / iOS 7.1.2 with new WS app?

Hi

Currently on a 1 year trip across Canada / USA.
I can't download the WS app version 5 on my iPhone 4 iOS 7.1.2 from apple store
Cause I don't have iOS 8.4 or superior (it's the message I get from App Store ).

I really need this app ! Would there be any way to make it compatible with iOS 7 ?

Thanks a lot

Thomas.

Sorry, the volunteer

Sorry, the volunteer developer decided that it would be too hard to update and maintain it for IOS 7, and that the audience was too small. I'm sorry that you *are* that audience.

Argh! I can't believe all

Argh! I can't believe all cyclists have the money for the latest (expensive) iPhone

Anyway planning is going to be a lot harder without the mobile app.

I've personally been quite

I've personally been quite successful using the site with the browser on my phone. It is certainly not optimized for mobile, far from it, but it's do-able. We do hope to get the site more mobile-friendly in the coming year.

Don't worry not all cyclist

Don't worry not all cyclist can afford the newest versions, there's still a few more iPhone 4 users out there. I guess we shall just have to get used to logging into the online version which isn't the end of the world, or upgrading to the costly new devices for the sake of the App. I've got to admit I'd rather just log in online, even though slightly less convenient, and reminisce over the good days with the App!

Remember the cost of the volunteer's effort

It is often not easy to maintain an app for several different versions, and remember that this app is maintained by a volunteer. So if it costs the volunteer 20 or 50 or 100 hours of his volunteer time to hold together an app targeted at many IOS versions, it can just become something that can't be kept up. So sometimes you just have to make choices, which is sad. But we definitely wouldn't want Chris to stop maintaining the app at all just because he didn't have time.

Big thank you to volunteer Chris

I'm very grateful for Chris's time and personally I think it's very straightforward to log in online. So, a big thank you to Chris for your hard work. Thank you

Yes, big thanks to Chris and

Yes, big thanks to Chris and all the developers for their efforts and, as always, there is nothing stopping other members with the appropriate skillsets from stepping up and contributing.

I Have an iPhone 4S with iOS

I Have an iPhone 4S with iOS 8.4 and the app keeps crashing and won't load. Is the support that the volunteer developer referring to not supporting the iPhone 4 or the iOS version??

App Crashes

Using iPhone 4s with IOS 8.4 (still) and downloaded the new/revised version of the iPhone application. The application launches and immediately crashes. The app remains open and I can see it in background tasks as being open to the map, but when I attempt to go back into the app, it continues to crash.

Moi aussi, j'ai un iPhone 4 et suis bien ennuyé de ne pas pouvoir utiliser WS sur la route... Pas les moyens de me payer un iPhone à chaque nouvelle version.
