using new functionality in 3.0 - eyefone - Jan 14, 2010 04:07 PM

Hello,

Any thoughts on whether or not it makes sense to utilise 3.x only functionality at this point?

My concern is that particular areas of functionality in my app won't work on older devices. Is utilising this 3.x onwards only functionality shooting myself in the foot by reducing who I can sell to?

What proportion of the market has 3.x?

according to pinchmedias newsletter the vast majority (90%) of people have upgraded to 3.0, my thoughts on this are if the user does not want to pay $10 to upgrade their OS on the iPod touch are they going to pay for your application?
