At some point, Apple doesn't let you update apps for older versions. I'm not sure if that's the case here or n
I don't believe this to be the case here. The same thing has been happening on my iPhone 4s iOS 9.3.5 LDS tools version 3.3.1
However, LDS Tools works just fine when I just downloaded it from the app store (you have to have an apple ID that has downloaded the older versions in the past) and installed it on an

The servers that ran HT/VT where shutdown. New services were created to support Ministering using a higher level of security for communication.
The shutdown of HT/VT is likely what's causing the older versions of LDS Tools on iOS to fail.
This seems to be more likely since the other two versions that I checked that "work" did not have any Home Teaching or Visiting Teaching functions. I am told that the developers only support the current version and the one previous. Therefore only 3.5 and 3.4
My phone is perfectly fine for me and I don't feel like upgrading just to be able to use LDS Tools. It is a pain to have to use Safari and use Leader and Clerk resources everytime I want to look up an address or phone number. I'm not sure how long it would take to fix the problem in 3.3 but it seems foolish not to do so since there are indeed people who don't waste money of the latest version of the iPhone (you know, something the church seems to encourage, being thrifty and all).
