    I do not know about an android app but using kanoplay is a good way to use the phone and I do not use more than 5 stam on reg bosses but it does show my fight list and everything else, for me using the phone is just something when I am not using my laptop cause I am not home, it is not an app it is just the kanoplay site the same one you use on the computer. I use it before the IOS app was even made, been using it for a few years now.

    Let me start by saying this:
    I accidentally found this game in the iOS app center, so I have never played via Facebook, except to compare parts of the game that appear to be missing from the app.

    I'm also only level 107 or so right now, but am so far enjoying the game play. The app presents the game in a much more intuitive and organized way than the Facebook version, so I plan to stick with the app.

    That said, here is a list of issues I've compiled thus far:

    Mob Wars iOS Bug List

    • Game music plays even when phone is on vibrate. (Game FX sound is silent when on vibrate).

    • Sent messages to mob mates are not showing up in the list of messages. Message threads do not show up until the mob mate sends a reply.

    • Sometimes when tapping the "+" icon to join a syn, nothing happens. Other times, it pops up a message saying something like, "if they approve you it will show in your news feed."

    • In the "News" tab, the Social Feed sub tab shows all items with a posted time of 1 second.

    • In the profile section, I was told to look at my personal load out and there would be an option to "customize" and "auto fill" for attack or defense. That appears to be missing in the iOS app.

    • In the More tab, when I choose the Feedback option and tap the "Report a problem..." button, it opens the iOS mail app, attempting to compose an e-mail. For those of us who refuse to use that app, it would be great if this were a built in form, link to a fillable form, or if the email address was displayed.

    • The above is also true in the More tab when selecting the Support option and tapping the "Contact Support" button.

    • Sometimes, even after clearing items from the Game History feed (from the News tab), the notification icon will stay lit on the Home tab.

    • Gamer point XP rewards don't appear to be available in the iOS app. In fact, the blue "i" icon on the Gamer Point screen doesn't link to anything. (It should link to info on the Gamer Point system).

    • The workshop is not available on iOS.

    !!! Build v1.13.738
    !!! Mob Code: B53B8D

    Thanks for the detailed feedback, it's greatly appreciated. :)

    Some of this stuff I believe the dev team is already aware of (such as not having the Workshop available on iOS), but I'll send it on to them.

    For joining a Syndicate, I imagine what you're seeing is because that particular Syndicate is either not recruiting at the moment or someone hasn't accepted your join request.

    I don't see the option n the forum to quote a reply, but maybe that's just me.

    As far as the joining of a syndicate goes, it's VERY likely that a previous Syndicate join request from me was still outstanding with another Syndicate. However, there was no indication of that. Just a split second spinning wheel. And then nothing. If the game requires a previous request to time out, be approved or be cancelled, then that's fine, but there should be a way for the user to see that pending request and cancel it, so they can move on. For example, a section under the More tab called "pending syndicate requests" or something similar.

    Lastly, in regards to this, I could easily request to join a new syndicate on the Facebook version, without waiting for a previous request to time out, etc.

    Again, it was just very frustrating as a new user to tap on something, and have nothing happen. Further, it would be just as bad if there is nothing the user can do about it, other than wait for a specified period of time before trying again with a different Syndicate.

    If you hover over a post, you'll see "Reply" highlighted in the left.

    I definitely agree that there are some aspects of the Syndicate join flow that can be improved on the app, but I just wanted to point out the various reasons you might see what you're seeing (which you seem to have already been aware of, my apologies). :)

    I SWEAR that reply button was NOT there the other day.... It must have been a Monday when I posted that. (Oh look, the forum SHOWS me it was a Monday! How cool! lol).
  11. The bit that I like best about the iOS app is that your requests are not followed up by the facebook request window pop up.

    This is the main reason i stopped playing on Facebook/Kanoplay1 I could not be bothered with all the pop ups.. Its a click game, I just want to click click click in the game... not be cancelling the pop ups!

    Coming, but for now use the mobile version of PC/LCN, it is kept up to date with the iOS app. :)

    But I play from Kongregate, so even from my phone, I can only play the PC version and its very laggy

  16. I find Puffin to be perfectly satisfactory as a mobile browser Hailok, LCN on Kong works very well indeed limited only by your device hardware. My HTC M9 handles it just fine.

    This is an issue we're aware of and are looking to address it in an update. Unfortunately it's turning out not to be an easy problem to solve, so it's taking longer than we would like. :(
