Thanks Sean,
So it might come at some point. I see what you say about the lack of online multiplayer support, but I think the game would be great fun to play solo on the iPhone /iPod. I play it all the time in SP mode with two or three characters on the iPad, and I love it that way.
I think I'm not the only one in this regard.
Keep up the good work,
Fimb

That's a good point regarding solo play. In fact, that's how I play it on the iPad most of the time as well. We'll definitely keep the iPhone/iPod in mind as we plan our future updates.

Thanks!

Hi, downloaded the update today, but seems iAP of the extra 10 islands doesn't work. When I try to buy, no button is working (stays grayed and inactive).

So, what's happening?

Earlier, I sent an email to the dev noting the same issue. Hopefully they'll reply soon.

Oh, cool, didn't realise new islands where being worked on. I look forward to trying them out once the problems are fixed.

Yes, but that would result in an error message, not a inoperative button within the app...

It looks like there's a glitch that's not allowing IAP. Hope there's a fix soon, the new maps look awesome.

I depends on the implementation of the button.

The IAP is not even shown on the AppStore page for Forbidden Island.

If the app attempts to call on the ITunes servers before activating the button (which is what it should be doing) well... It's getting nothing cause iTunes doesn't show that there is IAP for this app.

If the IAP was on the server but not available, like when we get that damn "still being modified" error, then the button would be available but we'd get some kind of error when attempting to actually purchase it

I've seen cases where the paired IAP, submitted with the update doesn't show up for ANOTHER WEEK...it's all up to the Gods of Apple. Usually the connected IAPs show up within 24 hours, but not always.
