Seems weird expecting 3rd party functionality linked to the price of a phone. My impression of the mobile market is that Apple tend not to produce the lower end phones that other manufacturers do so whilst their phones are higher priced, the lower priced offerings from other companies are to a lower performance (and you cannot link 3rd party app functionality to manufacturer performance on redundant hardware to price).

I can no longer get BBC radio iPlayer and it will not support the sounds app. Talk about a throw away society.
Fortunately I recently acquired an Android phone.
I will never buy Apple products again.
This is a common error across a range of older equipment from tablets and phones through TVs and set-top boxes.
Digital Rights Management changed with an upgrade that some older hardware cannot run.
It is not an Apple problem, your android will probably run these because of newer hardware rather than the performance of the operating system

Sony suffer similar issues. I can no longer record broadcasts on my Betamax tapes!
