Octiber 2023 uodate. Continues to have the same issues. Guess they don't really care about user problems. Jan 2023 update. Constantly crashes, won't let me watch the ads for coins until I've tried to watch the ad 3 or 4 times in a row. Freezes up. These issues are not new problems and for the record, I have a new phone so it's not because my phone is old 2020: Everytime this app updates my history clears out and it looks like I've not played at all.

Still crashes/doesn't advance. Not getting credit for the games that are played! Contacted about it, but that didn't help. Kind of made it worse because sometimes, instead of it crashing when I get done with a game, it will freeze, & then you can't do anything. Have to hard close out & restart app. Frustrating for a game with daily puzzles & challenges that don't get counted, plus that means the prizes you earn for completing the daily's is then taken away cause it's "not complete".

On top of recent issues users have mentioned (constant crashes, loses my streak), the app now randomly pops up with a virus. In the middle of playing a puzzle, app sends me to a website that is clearly an attempt to hack phone with "congrats, you won" website. All I'm doing is playing game. Not an ad after, not an ad from banner at top of game. I'm not risking my security and a possible virus and will stop playing.
