I'm at level 26 right now but it's happened since I installed. At first I thought it was a choppy mp3, but it's regardless of me playing from my music library, streaming radio, etc.

I rebooted the phone and opened up only Tiny Tower and my ipod, still skips.

iphone 4, 4.3.3, jailbroken but I don't have winterboard or any memory hogging nonsense.

Thanks!

I've found an annoying bug:

If you have a Bitizen move in, and you tap the ok button too fast, he will disappear. I did it twice by accident, and one time intentionally to test it. So just be careful you don't tap too fast!

And I just hit 51 Dream Jobs...but of course my Bitizens still find something to complain about in Bitbook~

Yup, only I go one step further and try to get another floor going as soon as the currently building one is less then 3 hours from completion. That way I can always get the full benefit of the construction VIP.

On another topic, if Nimblebit is taking suggestions for future tweaks, I'd like to either have the coin counting sound effect reduced substantially in volume or have an option to mute it altogether. In general, the sound effects are well done and functional (the plate clinking for food businesses is a bit jarring, but I've largely gotten used to it). Got the ding for someone wanting to take an elevator ride and the chime for a product ready, but that money counting... chink, chink, chink, chink, chink (^infinity). It serves no purpose and is there any time I want to listen to something and letting the game play.

Same here, except I HATE them (farmville, glu's recent releases etc)
Same here, except I'm absolutely ADDICTED to this game
Typical 'features', will ya? You should not expect to be occupied by the game for every minute of play. If you find the game to be too slow or have lack of gameplay, wait until you get a taller tower and have more things to manage.

Em, I want to disagree with you on everything here... I wish Nimblebit could increase the amount of coin counting effects. ATM they sound quite boring because the sound effect plays at a set interval and give no real sense of cash flow.
In general, imo, the other sound effects could be muted. I dislike the sound of opening the floor information panels. Elevator sound is alright but its something I'd rather not have.

Game still crashes instantly for me after the update. I tried a hard reset of my iPod with no luck. Running on iOS 3.1.3.

I don't buy it. The further you get in Tiny Tower, the less effect IAP has on your game. It's only at the beginning you need the cash injection so if you're sitting at 15 floors, why are the annoyances only "beginning" to appear? You should be raking in enough cash and gathering enough bux to keep yourself going, all the while keeping busy with ordering stock, sorting out dream jobs, colour schemes, etc.

If Tiny Tower's gameplay was a boulder rolling down a hill, IAP would be the lever that sets it in motion.

Oh, and I say keep the sounds. With all the feedback you're getting the only way to keep everybody happy would be to set a toggle for every sound in the game. Spend your time working on something more fun instead

I'd like an elevator upgrade for better brakes!
