Xcode versions

I have a Mac that's 10.6.8 and incompatible with Xcode 4.0 and above. I'm trying to complete the "build a simple app" tutorial but the 2 versions of Xcode look so different that I can't figure out what to do in Xcode 3.2. Does anyone know how to get around this?

Hi

I was having the same problem with xcode versions. I clicked on your link below in one of the two answers, and it lists it compatible with lion not snow leopard. Am I going to be able to complete the tutorial with my osx 10.6.8 computer?

There are some major differences between versions 3.2 and 4.2 of Xcode. I recommend downloading Xcode 4.2 for Snow Leopard: https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action?name=Xcode%204.2

Amit Bijlani, the link you gave does not work. :(
