I don't use these services ever really, but I though I would try a couple of them on a few devices yesterday. All of them worked fine except for appcasher. For some reason, appcasher seemed to maintain the same points on all of my devices. They have all been set up separately, so i can only assume appcasher is tied to my Apple ID since it is the only thing the devices share I think. Can anyone confirm this?

Currently Playing: Pocket RPG, Tentacle Wars, Oh My Heroes, Minigore 2, Mini Motor Racing, Eufloria, Swordigo

How long does it take to het that many points? On FAD it's 1990 points, IIFC.

Man is it easy since I started using the tapjoy webapp to get points for FAD. Only DL'ing apps, no signing up for credit cards of course. There's a whole list of apps on tapjoy w/point values listed. None of the other service use tapjoy, huh?

When did you try? They've been changing/adding every week, or twice a week now. Walking Dead was added 2 days ago, replacing the second newish Attorney Game( I forgot the title), which replaced the second Sky Gamblers game. True Skate was recently added; He-Man as well. I grabbed Megaman X for 990 points about a week ago...there seems to be about 8 apps (angry birds games, pandemic 2.5, Minecraft, Whatsomething messenger) always there, another 6 or so that stay up for maybe a month, 2 that get changed weekly, and one a week that gets added for a limited time. I have enough points for The Walking Dead, Order and Chaos Online, Minecraft, Lili, etc. among the 5+dollar apps I haven't already gotten.

I'm trying to decide between The first three. I really want Walking Dead but it's a huge file and I'll need to buy more episodes. Minecraft I've never played and have a feeling I won't understand. O&C seems like a good bet, but, since monthly charges have been dropped, I'm worried its life cycle might be ending soon. Plus I'de plop into a multiplayer game that some people have been playing for 100's of hours.

I can easily hit 10000 points, so I might just wait for a 10 buck Amazon card to become available.

Why? That would be about 20 bucks on FAD. I can't say how long it takes to earn points really; I end up spending points every week. This week for He-Man, Devil's Attorney, and Megaman X. Last week Burrito Bison. Week before that, Super Hexxagon and Tentacles (by microsoft).
