A lot of subtle changes I like in this update...

Prev1
Neighbors are now listed in alphabetical order. Nice. Now you can get a better idea how many more neighbors to still have left to visit.

    Also like the handshake icon with the black box around visitor's IDs.

    When neighbor's names pop out of handshakes, they have a contrasting background now, which makes them much easier to read. I like that very much.

    *edit* Well now I just look repetitive and redundant.

    Yes. I 100% agree
    Would have been better if they added it at Christmas time though :p

    His 8hr task use to be helping Brandine birth another Spuckler. It looks like they've taken that away since she's now actually in the game as a playable character.

    Won't see those new handshakes for a while when all the neighbours finish harvesting the first batch of roses.

    Growing the Roses for 3days straight is a bit long winded (unless it speeded up of course...sod that)

    I havent grown the 3days roses yet, still on stage 1 of 3, i'm not speeding that up total waste of donuts!

    The very 1st grow of roses which you have to do to get the update rolling pays out 200 hearts so it gives you a spin of the wheel :)

    It was like this from the beginning, but squid port or KL update changed it. I hated it ever since.

    It also appears that you can now use witch marge back-to-back to speed up a crop. I've done it once and it worked. Will test it out more.

    I think they should have left Cletus's task the same and made it so it sped up Brandine's Birth task just like Witch Marge and the Crops.

    I like several things I've noticed since the update.
    Arnie in the chopper doesn't seem as sensitive to the accidental "vicinity touch".
    Alphabetical friends and the new in game ability to see if friends are still playing.
    The clearer names above items they've tapped.
    The wise guys interrogation seems to be fixed for me when rearranging.
    The arrow buttons seem to load towns faster than before.


    To the OP, it's refreshing to see a positive thread among many complaint threads from others. :thumbup:

    Has the squid port glitch been fixed? I can't get a tile when I go on my other town and my friend can't give me a tile either? Has anyone else noticed this?
