Mac App Store and software purchases
Authored by: aca on Jun 01, '12 07:58:26AM

More and more apps in the apps store are require Lion or 64 bit processors, even for things that clearly don't require them. Developers often have versions that they've compiled for my older system, so I end up needing to buy them directly (even if it means to upgrade path if I ever do need to buy a new laptop). It would be better if the App store could let you purchase an app that wouldn't run on your system (with suitable warnings, of course), so that then the developer could send you a "legacy" version, but you could receive upgrades for a future time when you'd be able to use the "real" version.
