  2. If you have an iPad, please consider iRedTouch HD for iPad!

(*) Unfortunately it is no longer possible to support 1st gen iPod Touch and iPhone with iOS 3.x. This is due to restrictions set by Apple.

(**) Version for iPad is up-scaled to fit the iPad's screen. Use iRedTouch HD for full iPad support.
