There are at least a few means via Intrigue cards, buildings, and quest rewards to reduce it, but it is far easier to get than remove.

One of the cleverer aspects is how the penalty you get at the end of the game is NOT just based on your personal corruption level, but how corrupt Waterdeep has become as a whole. Basically every token of corruption becomes a bigger penalty the more tokens are distributed amongst your fellow players.
Sounds good. Bought the add-on but not in the mood to start a game today... It's added another section to the board? Can it be played together (optionally) with the first expansion?

Yes, and yes. Playing with both expansions sets the game to "long game" mode, and removes a random collection of 25 intrigue cards, 30 quest cards, and 12 building tiles from the base game.

How is the tutorial for a total board game newbie? I would love to start learning board games and this one sounds pretty fun. Also how is it on iPhone? I'd love to be able to play on the go, but I have an ipad 2 if the iPhone version isn't up to par.

It is good but as a newbie myself I learned from some various youtube videos explaining the basics. Trust me, it's very very easy. To understand how easy it is, let me tell you that in your turn, you can do only two things, one: place a worker, two: complete a quest.
But the difference is where to place a worker so that you can have the most benefit of your turn or the game in general.
It's not like other games where you have so many rules and it's chaotic. It's simple but not for kids.
In iPhone 4 that I had it, it was slow. I couldn't play it properly. Maybe it was due to ios 7 but in iphone 5s is very good due to the bigger screen and it's very smooth. I believe that in all the iphone 5 is all right but I cannot be sure. It's not frustrating either because the game is recommended for vertical position like the board itself = aka the iphone in normal position but you may need to do some times a zoom in / out but then again you don't have to.
It's recommended for iphone & ipad and I'm glad that playdek shows support to IOS in general :-) Neither Bang! is on android as well. One reason too for not having an android device

Anyone else seeing a message saying there's an update when trying to play online? The App Store shows no update, and I can't play online because of this message. Is an update really coming or did something get messed up on my device?

[update] nevermind, just got the App Store update notification.

The update is live in Australia - fixing a few different bugs and allowing Poison Quill to work with Study in the Librarium.

Bump for both the current sale price and that the IAP expansions are also on sale for just a buck each!

I usually do not have the patience for deeper strategy games, but I found it really easy to get started with Waterdeep. The tutorials do a good job of transitioning a new user, but it will be a long time until I master this game. I really love it.
