Have an iPhone 4 that I have wiped in preparation to give to my sister in-law. Wanted to install facebook for her but the appstore doesn't want to give the old version, insisting on ios 7. Knowing that ios 7 will cripple the device I'm looking for a work around or alternative?

It is already crippled by having iOS 6 installed. Just upgrade it, iOS 7.1 is not too bad on them.

I thought the app store now let you install old app versions for older ios versions?

maybe they fixed it, reviews i read were very critical of battery issues and performance degradation.

My son used IOS7 on his iPhone 4 with no issues until he replaced it recently

Sounds encouraging, I guess critical reviews don't get updated once the problems been addressed. We will see how it goes over the next couple of weeks.
