Hi, I'm new to IOS. I got Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and I'd like to write apps for iPhone and sell it on AppStore. I have good experience with programming in C/C++ and Visual Studio on Windows but like I said I am new to IOS I registered at Apple Developers Group and I tried to download newest XCode from AppStore but I see I need 10.7.4 IOS and I don't have it. Which version XCode and where from should I download? Will it still works? I mean can I create applications on older version and still sell it to AppStore or is that deprecated and it's impossible and I new newest version?

Thanks in advance for answers. Sorry for possible language mistakes - I'm not a native speaker


PS. That's the copy of post i created in other forum section. Someone told me that I should ask here.

    Xcode 4.2 is the latest version that runs on Snow Leopard. You must be a member of one of Apple's paid developer programs to download Xcode 4 for Snow Leopard. If you're not a member of one of the paid programs, Xcode 3.2.6 is the latest that runs on Snow Leopard. You can download Xcode from the following URL:



    As far as I know you can still submit apps with Xcode 4.2. I'm not sure about Xcdoe 3.2.6. But I don't know how much longer you'll be able to submit apps with Xcode 4.2. If your Mac supports Lion or Mountain Lion, I recommend updating.
