I also would like a old version of netflix for both my ipod 2g and iphone 3gs, the new version is out of sync with the movies. This is irritating!
Someone please upload an older version of netflix, 2.0 or earlier so we can use it on our old devices!
All of you have backups don't you?
Those Apps you downloaded have your information embedded in them and cannot be used by others.
Therefore, even if someone uploaded a version for you, you could not use it.
Try getting the version you want from your backup.
I see this is from October, but I'm throwing this out for others. If you don't have a backup, I was able to go to my recycle bin and restore the old file and then I drug it from the source file back into iTunes.
No, we don't. Often these situations of need occur when back-ups have failed.
Thanks for your useless answer. It's about as bloody useful as when Apple or Dell suggest a complete re-install of OS to fix a problem
In the same situation. Accidentally deleted the previous application from my 32 GB iPod on iOS 4.2.1. The iPod is up-to-date with upgrades. After a 30+ minute conversation with Netflix (see below)... Netflix NO LONGER offers the previous version and the newer version requires iOS5! Netflix does not seem to care that there are customer's who can utilize the app, if they simply make it available again. It's as simple as re-uploading it to their site. Netflix is alienating every user who doesn't upgrade their device.
It's not just Netflix. Apple has also made a decision not to host the older version in the app store, which in fact they were doing until fairly recently.
I also have a 2nd gen iPod touch, and was able to install and reinstall the compatible version pretty much at will until yesterday, when I discovered that I no longer had the option to opt for the older version. The decision not to support older devices which are still within their useful life is pretty much par for the course with Apple, as the orphaning of the PPC chipset has more than adequately shown us.
This is the last Apple product I will ever buy unless they show a significant change in their corporate attitude toward the customer. They make very nice, durable hardware, but fail to give it support through its useful life, because they think that will pressure people into upgrading devices which are still working. In my case that may well be true, but I won't be upgrading to an Apple product. Fool me once ...
