Jar of Marbles on iOS
Jar of Marbles version 1.5 has finally his the Apple App Store for iOS today. This update fixes a major problem when the application is unable to communicate with the Apple servers to verify a purchase, causing advertising to occasionally re-appear.
This update not only fixes that problem, but enables the Premium Upgrade, which permits customization of the background and marbles used, as well as providing additional styles of Jars.
For the free version, enhancements have been made to Twitter and Facebook posts and a new “Beginner” mode was added which makes the game a little easier for younger players.
Jar of Marbles on Android
The Premium Edition of Jar of Marbles (1.5) was released to Android marketplace without any problems. Google does not yet support in-app purchasing, so a free version known as “Jar of Marbles Lite” was released yesterday.
Jar of Marbles Lite is a free download and virtually identical to the iOS version with the present exception of Twitter and Facebook support.
The first day in the marketplace showed 2,000 downloads, which was 20% higher than the first day on iOS.
We are, to say the least, extremely pleased.
