Interesting ideas.
2 and 3 : I agree that they can do "bigger" (ie bigger planes, more layovers, etc...) whithout changing much, that would be the easy way to prolong the life of the game. But not that much whitout enhancing the UI at the same time! do you see yourself scrolling in a full 120 layovers airport
4: Many freemium titles do offer extra expensive and extra rare items, I'm pretty sure it's not the way NB wants to go though.
1 and 5: that would complicate the slick minimalist approach of the game, I don't see things like that happen.

Hopefully they'll surprise us, because outside of having bigger planes and enhanced UI, I still don't see what they could upgrade?!
My little wish list up there was not so much about UI, but about game structure. Btw I didn't mean paying real $$ for the 'extra expensive' items, I meant spending those 100,000s of bux many of us have by now

*Rant alert*

If you talk about UI, there's a big one on my wish list: getting some kind of dashboard that includes bux value. If you're on a bux strategy right now, you fly completely blind (no pun intended) as you're only able to look at the coin value of your activities. So here you are, making in excess of 2,000 bux a day (which you arrive at by vaguely remembering what your bux count was yesterday), and the game is telling you only that you're making some piffling amount of coins that has nothing to do with your real profitability.

*End of rant*

Cheers,
M.

There are 3 things that I'm very thankful that Nimblebit didn't design into this game (as opposed to many games on the apps):

1. Energy consumption to play game. Many games on in the appstore and on Facebook have consume a certain amount of energy when you take an action. I suppose the game developers want the player to spend cash to buy items that replenishes these energy bars. I don't make in-game purchases, so i end up playing with the game for a very short while; I can't play more even if I want (without resorting to cash items).
1a. A follow-up on this is that the finished product (be it cooking, producing clothes, growing crops) will expire if you don't return to harvest/collect it. Another way to "force" players to come back.

A great design of PP and Tiny Tower is that it caters to both intensive AND casual gameplay. You can catch coins/bux or check airports for bux jobs (thanks to our bux strategies) non-stop for hours. Or you can stay away from PP for days. It's always there waiting for you whenever you pick up, without imposing penalties like expired products.

2. You are forced to make friends to expand the store (e.g. Restaurant Story). Sometimes, you have to befriend a crazy number of people in order to have higher damage (e.g. Castle Age).

I join TA (and now TA1) because I want to. I add friends to GC because I want to. Not because I'm forced to by the game. I have meaningful conversations with you all, not just visit somebody's site to drop some coins

3. Some achievements require parts that can be gifted only by friends, or require in-game purchase. And/or the market that sells the items replenishes once a day. For me, the daily gifting/receiving of items becomes a tedious chore (especially if there's no batch giving or receiving).

In conclusion, my success in PP is determined on my hardwork and not some other factors, like friends' gifting. As a bonus, Nimblebit is very generous in doling out bux,
