Btw what does the homer statue? In its description it says; gives you premium items. What do they mean?
Premium items are the items on the lists that you buy with donuts. When you buy a Homer Buddha you'll be guaranteed to get a premium item. From a Picket Fence worth 1 donut to possibly one of the big buildings. I've gotten Tree Swings, Apple Trees, Lemon Tree and Dumpsters...

When I logged back in my town had been scrambled. The buildings were intact and in the proper locations but the ground tiles were a horrible mess of pavement and water and grass. The extra land tiles that I had purchased also became completely different some extended out in different directions, others greying out buildings.

I tried to force quit the app and then come back in and now it crashes when it loads my town. Same story on the iPad. I am extremely happy that I didn't purchase any donuts. It's nice to test out in smaller regions but game breakers like this are pretty serious and it's not ready for prime time.

To sum up this titles game breaking flaws:
-A bug exists which allows for unintentional unauthorized account access
-A possibly related bug can cause world and account corruption to the point of being unable to play
-Users on the app store are reporting issues purchasing donuts and not receiving them
-the app cannot connect after resuming and generally needs to be relaunched

Is this happening to anybody else?
This game has serious bugs and stability issues. Not to mention server outages and lately agonizingly slow status uploads. Seems that the larger your town is, the slower it gets and at almost level 14, I have a pretty big town. The bugs that you've mentioned have happened to quite a few and EA is apparently working on sorting them out.

I also purchased 60 donuts, they took the money, but I never got the donuts!

That sucks. Did you try logging out and back in to Origin? I always got mine but sometimes it took almost a minute to appear...

Yeah, I tried that with no luck, thanks.

I can't play no longer, as nothing I do earns me xp or money any more... this game completely sucks!

What is a positive thing for me if I visit other people towns and collect their rewards? And what do they mean with vandalize your friends buildings?

Yeah, if you exit right after collecting reward or assigning jobs, the status won't get uploaded and when you come back nothing's been done. A way around that for me is to go to the list of friend's towns and come right back to my own. Takes forever due to crappy network code in the game.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll try this next time.

On some friends I keep getting a "new version available so you can't visit them". But when I click get it, it just brings to the EA site. And there's no update in the app store. Anyone else have this problem?
