What's New in Version 1.3
Minor graphical updates.
This is a fun app! The clever humour (courtesy of Shaun Micallef, it sounds like) and quirky graphics make it a pleasant and surprisingly insightful way of learning real ABS stats about your area! Only problem is, the app crashes whenever I want to check Age stats, causing me to lose progress and go back to the start of the year. It would be a perfect 5 stars if it wasn't such a fatal flaw. :(
Adore it, but it crashes...
This app is really fun, and I really enjoy it, but could you PLEASE make it compatible with 4th generation ipod touch? After a month of continually crashing, I've finally made it to year 2... at this rate, I might make it to the finish by the end of the millenium.
Fix the crashing!!
I love the game but the constant crashing is annoying. Also it doesn't save very well. I played the other day for at least 30 minutes (I started a new town) and when I opened it up the next day it was back to the beginning.
