Trapdoor, you know myself and Big Albie were some of your first GI Joyride junkies so I wouldn't just pull yer leg. I still cannot get Facebook to work. It goes to about 75% and freezes. Before this update it would just close the app when I tried. Now it just sits with the loading bar. I can still adjust the volume on my device etc. Any help?

Trapdoor, it is so great to see you still updating this game and working on new ones. The last update was the surprise of the century to me, and made one of my already top favorite games even better. There was all this talk of updates when the game released, and then silence. Although I admit I had given up hope on any updates, GI Joyride has remained on my iPod for all this time anyway. It's just guaranteed fun every time I play, and when the update eventually DID come out it was like a reward for being loyal to playing the original. I know how rocky things can be for indie devs, so hats off to you for following through with this game. And I'll definitely be looking forward to your new games as well.

@rich I'm having the same problem, can't log into facebook. It seems to accept my login info, then a bar pops up like it's gonna load something then says an error occured. I guess at least it doesn't crash when you try to login now? I'd like to see it work though.

I'm still having issues with Facebook as well. The loading bar gets to about 75% and then freezes. I'd love to see this work, but it doesn't lessen my enjoyment of the game.

Hello everyone,

We wanted to thank everyone for their support and to those members who helped us iron out the Facebook issues. We will be submitting a new version of the game with Facebook fixed (once and for all!) shortly.

And to those who have been asking about our new games, we just started a thread this morning showing a preview of one of them:
