Won't run on an ipad1

Good grief, this app only runs on IOS 7. We have two IOS 5 iPads that can't be updated. So you spend $500+ on an iPad and it is soon obsolete and no one developers apps for it. Our kids really need literacy support with assistive technology but we can't afford new iPads every couple years. ARG!
