What's New in Version 5.4.2
Update has now broken the app
You should think twice about purchasing this game or any game from the developer. For the last few years, they have released updates that make it so the game will not start or does not record winning information.
This update is no exception. The app will not even load. I get the splash screen and then I see all my app icons again.
My suggestion is not to waist your money in removing the ads. I also suggest you don't even download the free (with ads) version. Until the flipside5 gets better quality control, Apple should ban them from iTunes.
I love the game, definitely the best one I can get on my iphone.
The app itself has a few bugs that needs working out. I updated the app a few days ago and now it won't open up. I have to uninstall then reinstall.
Then it will work but I lose all of my points. So I start playing and after a while it won't let me back in, so I uninstall and reinstall.
Looks like I just have to keep doing this.
At least apple doesn't make me keep paying for the upgrade.
Fun game, but buggy and not a very large community of players
The themes are neat and earning credits to unlock them is fun, but online play is lacking. Community can be fun and diverse, but it isn't clear how to chat or that chatting is even available in the "free" (annoying) version. Ads seem to pop up at random and in spurts of ridiculous numbers. Occasionally the app starts crashing every time i attempt to open it. I have not attempted to debug and am unsure if a reboot will fix the problem. Uninstalling and reinstalling does, though.
