    I tried but could not download. I am using Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and the app store still says it is for Mac OS X Lion 10.7, I hope they roll an update to this link. I also could not find in the developer web site a link to download it.

    Same here. Maybe Snow Leopard isn’t really supported, therefore wrong info.

    It specifically says its for 10.7 and up in the readme:

    Compatibility: Xcode 4 requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.7.0 Lion or later
