Fix the crashing problem

The only thing for me it doesn’t crash on is the tutorial!
I really hope this gets fixed because I played this on Xbox and it was great. I don’t get any lag or anything but every time I try to go into a game it loads a bit but then crashes. And there was more maps on Xbox I think? I will not go to the support website if you are from team 17 support then you will be able to go to the producers without people going to the website. Its not just me who has this problem I have seen five bad reviews about this problem so obviously it’s a very common problem. I would like to note that it seems like this problem is only for iPad mini two users hence the good reviews.

Great but big problem

I really enjoy this game and the graphics and everything is great, but there is a problem that ruins everything for me;whenever I swipe up my app (because it is a habit) even if I let it use iCloud all my progress is lost and the settings doesn’t say it is allowed to use I iCloud so I have to make my character again and start again to. I do like this game, but the glitch is annoying. (I have it on auto save by the way so I don’t just forget to save.)

Loving it! One bug though

Absolutely loving this game I played the first and this one is even better. But one major bug for me, I am on the 11 inch iPad Pro (the brand new one) and on the second real prison I’m starting to get freezes a lot and the game crashes, now I can’t get onto the game without it happening which is really frustrating. Hopefully this gets fixed soon, I love this game on the iPad it works really well other than that.
