Disappointed with Criminal Case

I have been playing these games for years, especially the first one created. I play it on my iPad mini. I have had so many issues with it crashing. I counted at least 25 videos that I watched to receive energy and I never received it. The screen would go black, gray or white and then crash. The same goes for watching videos for cash, but I only counted 12. There were 3 times that I spent $5000 on a round of investigation and it crashed while I was playing, so there went that money. I'm beyond frustrated. I have tried several times to follow the instructions given in the troubleshoot. It's horrible that they send you a message saying that this is going to be the only contact that you receive from us. What happened to talking to real people and getting help with a problem? I rarely play the games anymore. I've put so much time and effort into it that I'm torn. I really do not want to shut it down and lose all my progress. I definitely think this game and its makers/customer service has several issues to work on. Your players are committed to playing your game, please be committed to helping them when they have an outrageous number of errors.
I tried playing it on my iPhone but it takes me back to near the beginning of the game. I can't even sync my devices to be at the same place in the game. Would love some help!

Progressing from world edition to mysteries of the past

I’ve been playing this game for the last 5 years. I loved this game. Throughout the ups and downs, highs and lows, depression and anxiety, this game was something I could always fall back on. I had found comfort from a tumultuous life in this game! The developers have no idea, how much this game helped my mental health.
Unfortunately, I’m at the end of the world edition. I don’t want it to end. I wish it like continue to another level or something. But The progress I’ve made, none of it would pass on to the mysteries of the past. It’s like THE END and I can’t face that. I’ve stopped playing because I don’t want to progress anymore. Why would you do that? Why would you make mysteries of the past a separate game??? There are so many out there like me who just don’t understand the point of separating the game. I played 5 years! That’s not a joke! I’ve known this game longer than I’ve known my husband or kids! This game was my comfort from the craziness of life. I wish it hadnt ended that way! Please, keep the game together! Don’t separate the parts! They need to be connected! Mysteries of the past with the rest of criminal case! I can’t lose the only thing that’s keeping me going!

I have finished the game till the world edition. I refuse to play mysteries of the past unless the app allows me to carry on my progress from world edition! IM DONE!

Challenging yes ! Boring and lacking ? Hell No !

I have tried many other games and Criminal Case is the only one that I have gained proficiency at in the way of the complexity of the cases, the variety of scenarios and the diversity of characters. I have Parkinson's disease and I find my brain benefiting from this game. I don't sleep more than 3-4 hours at a stretch and consequently I am up in the middle of the night playing. This allows me to play more over the span of a day than most people. I love recommending this game to family and friends. It relieves some of the stress that comes with everyday living and allows me to escape into a world that is highly organized and fun to play. I also liked the videos because I did download many other games that I was not aware of earlier. I'm going to keep my rating at 5 stars because I still like the game immensely but it just needs a little tweaking. I’ve been playing for over 3 years and now play Mysteries of the Past as well as Save the World. I just can’t seem to get enough of Criminal Case. The roulette wheel is ingenious. Thank you so much.
