Yes, of course. Up to five players can play on the same device.
• Do I need to buy the expansions to participate in a game with expansions?
If you are playing local network multiplayer you can share an expansion with your opponents. To play online multiplayer, you need to buy the expansion to play with it.
• Can I play with expansions in quick play?
Yes. However currently we limit the combinations of the expansions in quick play to avoid fragmentation of the player base and longer waiting times for games. We try to give three or four useful combinations for quick play. There is also the "Automatic" category that tries to match you up with anyone who wants to play right now.

My new favorite game
I bought this app because I wanted to try the game out before buying the actual board game, and it quickly became my favorite board game ever.
Honestly, it was the first app I ever purchased, and I'm really glad I got it. I quickly saw how much of a deal the expansions were, so I bought all of them. Each one changes the game in unique and fun ways.
The app is so well made and so fun that I never got the actual board game. The app is MUCH cheaper, takes no time to set up or put away, and requires no space to store it (as opposed to the large box and multiple small boxes for the game and its expansions) that it made more sense to just play the game digitally.
Even with the expansions, this game is simple enough that my kids (ages 8 and 5) enjoy it, but it's different each time and challenging enough for a lifetime gamer like me. If you're looking for a great game, you can't go wrong with Carcassonne. It just may be your new favorite game.
Recent Update Crashes Frequently
The update which introduced Winter and Double Base Tile Set expansions also introduced extremely frequent crashes on my iPhone 5 and iPad 3,2. More than once per game (!!) I get dumped back to iOS. Fortunately the game state is preserved but it takes the app quite a long time to get back to playability upon relaunch as it cycles through several non-responsive screens. It's a huge annoyance in an otherwise very enjoyable game. Subsequent updates have not improved reliability.
King of the Hill
Still the gold standard to compare all other iOS board game ports against. Additions and updates are slow, but always worth the wait. A bit pricey to be sure but I consider it well worth the cost. So much that I gifted 4 copies of it for xmas.
