Still beta software?

This is a fairly good game, but for me, VoiceOver says it’s beta software still. Is this true? As it is, I’m on HG61 and have no idea how to acquire crystals even though I attempt to explore the crystaline regeons. There are some, it appears, until I try installing the crystal extracter. VO informs me that crystals aren’t in the regeon, but they should be there. What’s that about? The music’s very good—far better than that for crafting kingdom. However, some of the sound effects are the same, not a bother though. I am not one for downloading beta software as a rule ... this being my acception, apparently. I wonder why the game’s still running on that platform, or is VO misinformed? Maybe, the aliens did somethings to its computer systems, ha ha! Keep up the good work, but make it more keyboard friendly/can’t use a bluetooth keyboard at all so have to swipe a lot on the phone. Also, fix the bugs noted here, and you’ll be going into orbit ... another joke there!

Great game

I love the game, and I love the gameplay. I love the sounds and I love the experience however I do not appreciate that I have watched over 20 videos to gain energy cells and have not been able to gain one through the videos. I am also having trouble with the boosts. Sometimes it does not activate after watching the video, and no matter what you were watching a video for, you lose the sound effects of the game once you’re done watching the video and there is no way to turn them on except for restarting the app and sometimes that does not even work. The video rewards are also hard, because sometimes there is no back button or way out of them, and without the ability to have voice on the screen tell me what button you’re pushing you do not know where the back button is and they are not always in the same spot for the video awards. I know that the video rewards are developed by other people, however I’m hoping that you can develop a format with them to where they can start putting the back button or an exit button somewhere on the top of the screen for those of us who are blind. I do love this game however, and I enjoy playing it but I wish I didn’t have to fight to get my energy cells. I should have at least 100 but have not been able to find any through the videos.

Random Connectivity

Thank you for consistently updating accessibility issues. An issue I have had all throughout but which I wasn't sure was an issue or just part of the game is with connectivity. If I am well into establishing a colony on a planet, I could lay down a living quarters and a farm in one place in the world, and sometimes I can't connect the farm to a warehouse I built right next to it, but I can connect the farm to a warehouse in some random location on the other side of the world. This is similar for any production buildings, again well into the colonization process. I'll build a factory or a robotics center, and sometimes I'll be able to connect the factory or robotics center to an appropriate building in some random place in Timbuktu but not to the building I established right next to, or almost right next to, the factory or robotics center.
Additionally, could use more extensive help for how to create products such as fusion engines: I connected the robotics center that produces fusion engines to every combination of warehouses I could, and I still get an error.
