Didn’t work initially- content was blacked out

I’ve tried to use this twice for the. crew Mission Deep Sea. After downloading content the links to tutorial and music disappear and can’t select anything. I tried again and same thing happened. Weird.

Updated: after reading another comment/fix from the developer, I closed a lot of apps and reloaded the content and it plays now. So other glitchy than memory management(?) issues it seems to be a nicely produced overview of the game. I’ve revised my rating.

Developer Response ,

Hi Cdanomite, thank you for your feedback. That sounds indeed a bit weird. Could you please send us an e-mail at apps@kosmos.de where you let us know your phone model and iOS version? It would be also very helpful to know how many games you have currently downloaded in your helper app, and if you can possibly remember how many other apps were running in the background when you tried downloading The Crew. All of these things could influence the apps behaviour and any information helps us find a solution faster. Thanks for your help, your KOSMOS Team.

Didn’t work for Kidnapped in Fortune City

After pressing the play button for the intro video, nothing happened. I could press pause, but nothing ever started playing. The timer did start.
The mini games were…uninteresting. I was hoping for something that would be like anything I’ve experienced in an EXIT game. Nope.
Perhaps it will work for other versions of other games. We’ve done almost all the EXIT games save two or three, but this was the first time wi through the atmospheric soundtrack would be nice. That wasn’t even offered for this game version
Disappointing product from a company whose EXIT games have made our pandemic experience much more enjoyable due to the challenging fun for the whole family.

Developer Response ,

Hi Taskmaster, thanks for reaching out to us about this. We will be happy to look into this issue. Could you please tell us what device you were using? Did you make sure that your devices media sound was not muted? Have you experienced this with any other EXIT timer? We really appreciate your help and we hope you enjoyed playing the game nonetheless. Your KOSMOS App Team

Latest Update Won’t Install


I turned my phone off and then turned it back on again. Went back into the App Store and was able to successfully download the most recent update for this app.

Here on December 7th, 2022, the latest App Store update for this app doesn’t install. It just hangs and won’t install. When I click the square button inside the circle to stop it, that doesn’t do anything either. Not sure what’s going on, but the update is not installing or working correctly at all.
