I. Am. So. Sorry.
I know there was a terrible crashing bug in 1.55 and I've been stressing out trying to figure out what was causing it. I *think* I've solved it. I ended up being able to reproduce a crash on one of my iPads and I fixed it. So hopefully that was the only crash. If you update to this version and are *still* getting a crash, please reach out to me at [email protected] or on twitter at @wtrebella with info!
Holy cow I feel so bad.
What has gotten into me?
Promise I will try my best,
For I have not forsaken thee
Special bonus guest poem by user Diflachebeh who was kind enough to leave Pivvot a five-star review even though he/she was getting the one-star-deserving crash bug:
"It's mad fun but as soon as you open the app. It crashes. But not to worry as they will fix it as always and give us a poem. Probably something like.
The game is fun.
Even with bugs.
Now it should run.
Now I give you hugs."
Diflachebeh, I applaud you for such a glorious poem and generous review.
