    is this only available on iOS 5? What about support for older versions? Also, will this work when the new iOS 6 gets released?

      The demo project uses ARC, which is for iOS5 and above, to support iOS4 and above you need to add methods to handle memory management. There shouldn't be any issues with iOS6
