    sounds nice as a theory, but unfortunately it cannot work that way due to economical reasons.

    For each version of an OS you need to maintain in a project, you have to keep a budget for it (even if trivial, the complexity increases for every little thing that your new version does that the OS cannot support directly).

    So what you do is say that I will not support an OS that has less than X% people using it. In my old company, OS versions were deprecated after less than 2% of our client base used it. The biggest such leap was with Gingerbread ( 2.3 ) which included MANY different ways of doing things, and you basically had two completely different programs, but only one pool of people to maintain them.

    After a while, developers would moan in frustration when they had to support bugs in the "old" version, since they had to "reinvent the wheel" to do things that were simple in the new OS version. End result: we deprecated Froyo when it dropped under 8%, since it was giving us so many headaches!

    I suppose the same applies here, even though I think they use a transpiler from Flash to app code, which should resolve most of these issues...

    I agree, but on older phone could have an older version of the operative system.
    So maybe it's right to say that it happens with an older version of Android.

    same with English there is a lot of German text in the app I assume it is because the translations haven't been approved yet.

    When you log off from the app (pressing "X" in the right corner in the login screen) the word to get out is in German (it happens with italian version, I don't know with the other)

    This is what I get on my Samsung S4, with Android 5.0 on board, game app update to last fixed version:
    - there is no way to exit the app, you can go only to your login screen. So you have to kill the app if you don't want it to be executed on background (using battery & memory of your smartphone)
    - there is no zoom option, so select someone from hall of fame/friends list/mail/arena is quite difficoult
    - the function to compare your pg with another don't work
    - hall of fame is often slow to load (also with a good wi-fi connection)
    - Inventory, potion, mount information are separated from pg: it is my opinion that it is not so useful: selling/buying something is more difficoult then before, it's hard to see when your mount or potions expires (you have to remember to check it in that separate section)
    - When you have to select your adversary from HoF/Arena it's really uncomfortable: you don't have in the same place the list and player information. I don't need all the icon and information: I prefer to have the right one that I need to choose my enemy selecting by a list on its side. I suggest less, clear info of my enemy and a list on its side like pc format
    - In the tavern the name of the mission often are too long and are overwritten on the reward
    - In the tavern should be useful to have a zoom function: the mission on smartphone have small characters so it's quite hard to select mission
    - It would be useful if the 4 main icon button on the left will blink if some action select from its sub-icon ended (e.g: in the first main button there are tavern, guard, etc. The main button will blink if the guard or mission are ended. Actually blink only tavern or guard button and if you don't click on main button you don't realize that the action has finished)
    - the app icon is really small

    edit:
    - If I press on the mount icon to see how many days left, it bring me directly to the stable and don't show me the pop-up window with the information that I need

    New Android update

    I downloaded the new Android update for my HTC One M8. It is generally working fine the only problem I have noticed so far is that I can't see how much gold I have as it goes off the top left corner of the screen.

    We sent the fully functional apps to Google Play and Apple (iOS) some weeks ago. We are still waiting for their approval which takes a while. The updated versions will be available afterwards.

    Oktoberfest does work on your phone, too but the Oktoberfest image is missing. If the beer in the tavern is not free make sure to have at least 1 mushroom by saving the mushroom for the first quest of the day for example.

    Oktoberfest

    Oktoberfest is not showing on the Android App in the tavern at all. Click on bartender and he wants mushrooms in return for beer. App users are already at a disadvantage as not all the features are available, eg dungeon portal, is this a bug? or developers just not interested?

    HTC One M8 running Android 4.4.3
