An update for the Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing app [iTunes link] recently showed up in the iOS App Store, which deserves some mention. The iPhone 3G is more than three years old, and it’s a forgotten device at Apple HQ. And developers, the good people that create apps for iOS devices, tend to ignore old hardware to take advantage of everything newer devices have to offer.

But I give enormous credit to SEGA. Look at this image. Not only is SEGA making apps that still work with old hardware, but they are optimising their apps for use on older hardware. This is a rarity, and a really good one. By optimising apps for use on low-powered devices, they run silky smooth on the latest and greatest. Additionally, it is beneficial to every person that uses older hardware.


Credit where credit is due.
