Well offering to roll back to the previous version would have been a 
start as that worked sufficiently well.


seem to recall that you can save your progress to the cloud, but whether 
that worked I dont know.


anyhow will keep an eye out for an update.

>> yes i became obsessed with Crafting Kingdoms too. managed to complete my estate and was creating a lot of gold coins. Think I accumulated 250 million or so on a few occasions. Noticed it started misbehaving and had to reinstall the app a couple of times. then they released that update which completely broke it. god that must have been 5 or 6 months ago and since then there have been no updates so guess thats the end of that. Mixed feelings really as it was very addictive, but the problem was that hours out of the day would just disappear. Only play dice world and 7 little words now which is enough to be going on with.

Great sounds too.
