Is anyone playing this game? I've been playing it on my iPhone 4 for about a week, and I've been enjoying it.

If you're unfamiliar, it's a free app, and basically you start off with an empty house, and every couple of hours you will receive money to spend on purchasing furniture, appliances, wallpapers, floors, etc. to renovate rooms.

There is no real skill involved in the game, but it's still fun to design a home with different styles. My gripe with it is that the game seems too linear, in that there doesn't seem to be a way to gain money quicker. It appears that you have to wait several hours for your money to replenish, and there doesn't seem to be any strategies that you can apply to the game. I also hate how much of the attractive furniture requires Coins as opposed to bucks. Coins are rarer and more difficult to obtain, and it seems that this is simply so you'll end up using real-world income through in-app purchases to buy digital furniture.
