I think they ajusted it because so many people were complaining it was too hard without recipes, so they basically tried to dumb down a few things in the game to make it easier for the noobs who are too lazy to google a tutorial!
I'm glad I got to experience the original version and collect my own recipes, I thought that was a nice little touch..it's a shame others didn't "get" it..because that was really one of th only goals in the game..now it's just about mining and building basically.
It's not entirely just the recipe book that has prevented me from updating the app, though I do think the devs should have allowed those who had already completed the recipe book keep them as well as the new book, but im also worried because there's all these new bugs in other versions, I'm worried there might be some that haven't been encountered yet that'll fully crash the game, and that'd really irritate me immensely..although I haven't actually played junk jack im days..I tend to play for hours on end one day, then don't touch it for a while, then do another long session, rather then short consistent sessions.
Believe me, I was one of the first to stamp my feet in protest and say I wasn't going to update. But I did. And I don't regret it. Other than not understanding where to put the new craft pages I found (or in truth, where they landed) it was seamless. The update is fantastic. You still need to find all the pages, they only give you a handful of moves and crafts. So please update, don't hold off for anything other than fear. I was fearful, I did it, so now you can too.
Besides, you are going to NEED to update to the next one which includes making the chests bigger - 48 slots instead of 12 (I think I read?) And then of course there will be the update to include the quests and finally be able to make the mailbox. And discover what the vial is for!
So hold out now, but there really isn't any point. The more recipes you collect now, the more you will have to recollect when you update at a future time.

You still collect them - see above. There is an update coming with the quests - see above. My goodness, the devs had to rush out a fix for people that could not play PERIOD and that delayed (sorry don't mean to speak for you pixbits) the quests and new things they probably had scheduled. Now with this latest wrinkle in the 2g story I am sure they are hard at work at that. We all can play the game, they can't. I am willing to let the other things get delayed a little so the ones that can't play can.

No, he was talking about those of us who were upset that the basic game play might change. Then the update hit. Then we realized that it didn't. No bugs here. Only bugs I see are of the 2g owners still, for whom I feel sorry that they can't play a great game. You might be talking about another rare bug that was there from the start - losing your inventory when creating a new world too quickly or maybe when getting call in the middle of it, or something like that. You can back up your data (thanks for the tips from some members who taught me) using the iTunes fileshare. Have a backup of you game data on your computer and if you experience that crash you will be able to reload it. Ok that isn't ideal but they are working on the fix.
@Pixbits and company - I am sorry I doubted you. I am eating my posts write now. I really should have trusted you would make the update amenable for all and you did!
