Dynamic Island

Apps very awesome everything about it is spontaneous. I just have one thing more like an idea I know there’s an option to always show on the island but instead of a floating animation in the island I think it’s be better if it’s constantly running around up there not only when you’re on the opened app ya feel me? and long press to feed and watch it eat while being on your Home Screen. and maybe play idk how the wand would work but definitely when feeding and playing with a ball I would say.

Really Awesome, a couple things though (updated to 3)

Hi! I recently got the app and loved it immediately. The cat (Hugo) looked exactly like my cat at home! However, the first thing I see when I open the app is the chance to buy premium. I don’t think much of it, and look for the button to close the screen. Now, I’m not sure if this is just my (discontinued) iPod Touch’s fault, but the top part was completely cut off, so if there was a close button, I wouldn’t have seen it! I had to forcequit the app just to add the cat to my screen. After that, it was smooth sailing except for the fact that anytime I opened the app, it kept asking me to rate it! Like, once in a while is fine, but after I was gone for literally 5 seconds? Not cool. Eventually, I decided to just hit the button and write a review, when I saw in the description that I can change the name of my pet. Again, not sure if this is my device’s fault, but I could not figure out how to do this. Finally, I noticed that the actions are basically the same thing. Walk and run are the same, as well as lie down and crouch. Only sleep is unique, and the only difference between that and lie down is the Z’s that float from the pet’s head. Anyway, that’s why I gave it 3 stars. Overall an amazing app, just a few bugs that need to be worked out!

Suuuuuuuper buggy right now

Edit to 3*- After the most recent updates, it looks like the subscription bug is fixed. I’m personally still having syncing issues between Apollo and Pixel Pals, where it’s not showing the right pet or stats. However, it’s light years better than it was when it released. It’s actually working smoothly aside from the syncing issue.

There’s still the concern of losing all of our food and progress from Apollo usage, and I haven’t heard if that will or can be rectified. At least the food… That was a LOT to lose.

We’re losing the Pals that we have already grown through Apollo, losing the food that’s been gained, losing all of our stats, and there’s issues with the subscription process. It’s just bug laden right now. I know it will get fixed, but for the time being, I’ve gotta give it 1 star. Definitely wait for another update if you’ve already put time in to Pixel Pals via Apollo. Even if you haven’t, I would still wait so you don’t have a headache with the subscription issue.
