Fixed a disconnection issue caused by system popups

The official game app could win if...
To draw the good players and defeat all the other Othello/Reversi apps out there, this app needs to be improved. First, fix the glitches. I’ve lost so many games due to the app crashing. Fix that please. Super annoying. Some sort of audio clue when the timer is running out should be standard. Maybe an option to turn it on or off?? The game is a little sluggish, especially when the other player has no moves. A rating system of some kind (probably modeled after the official tournament system) should also be implemented. Finally, it would be super clutch if the app named the official openings, like Othello Quest. If it did these things, I bet this would become the go to app for everybody. The top app now is not that great.
Please change how winning points are counted
I love this game and I play a lot everyday. Thank you for working hard to make this possible. That been said point system is not working properly I think. I feel some people have figure out the way to stay in top without playing the game. Please get rid of people getting points from games that are less than 5secs. Even 30secs. Most people who actually “Play” this game would probably like that. Everyone need to play the game to earn points. I know Othello is not about getting the points but one of the aspect of why I like this game is the point system.
If there are some other point systems you can put into the game so better player who can’t play as often can stay in the top some people might like that also.
This app is incredibly unstable on iOS. You cannot exit the application, tap on any notifications or hop on or off WiFi mid game without triggering an automatic loss - it says you’ve lost by disconnecting. Something. As simple as swiping down from the top right corner to lower the volume of the music playing off the phone on a Bluetooth speaker, then swiping back up to resume the game results is a loss by disconnection. This has probably happened to me about 30 times in the 3 days I’ve had this app and it’s unbelievably frustrating. Oh, and if you get a phone call mid-game that you decline to answer, yup - lost game due to a disconnection.
Another issue - the invite to game feature doesn’t work, at all. I’ve had players I’ve wanted to re-play, added as buddies and invited to play but it simply doesn’t work.
Also, the rating/score system makes no sense at all: 3 points for a win against anyone and no points lost for a loss? There’s no way to target play against people at a similar skill level since you can’t actually peruse the high score list and select people to play.
As much as i love this game, these issues have made me want to delete this app altogether because I can’t enjoy the game with all of the stability and disconnect issues.
How’d the developers allow this app to hit the market with such glaring issues? It’s mind-boggling to me that these haven’t been addressed.
