Apple Approved Update But iTunes Not Updated

Hey guys, don't ask me why but there's a weird delay. Usually how it works is we receive notice that the update is approved and then we update our info and within the next couple hours the actual binary is in place for everyone.

I see we have a ton of emails and comments to field and will get to it later today. We did another late nighter getting an update together which has been submitted. Both Dave and I have other projects taking our time today but I will get to the comments tonight or tomorrow morning.

Also there are submissions for the fan art Flickr! Thank you! I will update that too later as well.

  2. So I got the update, but I don't know what the islander icon in the new menu means. What does it mean to have the islander icon highlighted or not?

  3. The update's available for download now! Got a question though: what does the islander icon on the menu do? The other ones are very easy to guess, but I haven't figured out what turning "on" and "off" the islander icon would do. Thoughts?

  4. I have this idea (well, several) for PG. first of all, I think that as a way to expand the island you could have it be an island that is circular like a strip of land (like the current island) that rotates around the volcano. the island could be rotated like the strip on the top of the screen that controls the weather, but on the bottom or as left and right arrows in a corner. also (even though I'm sure you're already working on it) I think buildings that Pocketians could build and live (or work?) in would be sweet. and about those "visitors" that are mentioned in the app description, what if they could be greeted by the Pocketians, and then warmly accepted with a feast or something or fought against in a mini cartoon-like skirmish? finally, I think that the Pocketians should be able to gather food and water and interact with each other, kind of like Sims. and like with the coconut, the person playing could feed them or choose not to, which would determine the Pocketians look and/or mood. oh, and I don't know if you guys already considered it, but if the person playing is the "God", where are our devoted followers? shrines? priests? crusaders, even? I know this is a lot to ask for, but I'm sure you guys could do something with these ideas. thanks Bolt for the awesome app! (and by the way, Pocketians refers to the villagers if you didn't already guess that) =)

  6. hey I had an idea involving feeding the pygmies. what if you made a bird flying over the island, and if you struck it with lightning, it is cooked and falls onto the island for the pygmies. you might want to make it a little bigger than the coconut, otherwise it will be too hard to hit. and hey maybe you can get a creative and make the bird do things like poop on an pygmie every once and a while. Please consider.

  7. the update is out wooooooo great job guys
    im gona take a guess about what the next update will be, is it when you put the new rock in front of the moon, an eclipse happens and the rock looks like a full moon, and the islanders turn into vampires.

  8. oh yeah and if you decide to use my previously stated idea, give it an episode name like "From The Heavens Above".

    You guys are the most dedicated developers on the app store, so just ignore those negative reviews try your best to stick to your promise.

  9. how many different episodes do you guys think you'll make?
    anyway, I got episode 9: idle hands, and it is very awesome
    I love how you can turn off/on the god powers
    for example: on the bus, on the way to school, the little guys are always
    going nuts because I'm shaking the iPod, but it really isn't me, it's the bus
    hitting all the bumps in the road, so this update was perfect for that problem.
    hmmm....I wonder what episode 10: Hi Dracula is suppose to mean for new updates ;).....anyways you guys rock, keep up the good work

  10. i dont undertsnad y the update isnt well updating the icon is there and all but i cnat update it so wats wront exactly??

  11. I can't wait to find out what hi Dracula means. A sugestion add a small karma meter in one of the corners kinda like a car spedometer and add different karma points to different actions like dancing is worth 10 points every 100 fireworks and drownding is worth -5 karma points and special points if your evil or good. For good you can use an option in the menu where you can tickle them. For evil you can make them cry when you touch them hope you like my suggestions : )

  17. Pocket god is the most entertaining games I've played, maybe more features though also I like the idea of a rival island and you can make them fight also tsunami and volcano would make the game close to perfect!!!

  20. Guys this is really great but i must say 1 thing. PLZ add more customization! like i really hope that in hi dracula u can make dracula an islander. and if u do add more islanders let them coexist together like dracula with a normal islander

  21. I think the islander icon gives them emotions...and vampires are you serious??come on thats just rediculous...you should give us a hint for the next update

  22. Pocket god is the best game I have ever played
    Oh and for all the people wondering,
    The islander icon in the pop down menu screen enables/disabled islander dancing which is caused by tapping the screen in rhythm to the music
