January 2024: Still have these issues and more.October 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.

Game updated today. Before was constantly crashing and now wouldn't even load first mini puzzle! It seems odd that ads aren't a problem, just playing the game. I have quite a few games on my phone and this is the only one I ever have a problem with. UPDATE: Was put in deep sleep to avoid damaging my phone. Why can't the issues with this game be addressed? Constantly freezing up and crashing

Love the concept of this game, but EVERYTHING, EVERY complaint that others have mentioned are present 2024! Crashing, freezing, lost progress, not receiving coins, badges, stars, bonuses, gifts from others....all still problematic. Here's the newest.... you must accept new terms etc. by end of February but there's no I accept button! I'm curious if CWF 2 works more smoothly but I don't want to exercise punishment gluttony
