    Newbies who register with the sole intent to promote their app do not have PM rights. Actually, newbies who have been here less than 24 hours don't have PM rights. He will, so just wait a day. You'll read about that in the FAQ.

    OP ... no offense but I would have released this news when the app is available. People aren't going to be inclined to remember you in a week.

    Looks good though, if it's like the other Tycoon games it is sure to be a hit ... next week.

    LOL, you are right Jessica! Thanks for the info on the PM system. Being a new developer .. and this being the first time I've ever released any type of product into the wild... I figured it would be nice to give advanced copies of the app.

    I'm still learning all of this :D

    Can we change the title to reflect that this is contest for a chance to win a free copy of this application? The application itself isn't free.

    I've been getting a few emails regarding why 2.0 is already being mentioned and 1.0 isn't out yet .... and why didn't we just wait and make 2.0 ... 1.0

    Well here's the deal.. 1.0 had been complete for a long time (August) but I couldn't release the app due to finalizing legal stuff. During that time, myself and a small team started working on 2.0 which is an even more enhanced version of the game.

    Because of the amount of work being put into 2.0 .... I decided to push it's release back to November... soooooo in the meantime I thought I should just release 1.0 as an introduction.

    Plus 1.0 will be $1 cheaper than 2.0 ... so all those lucky enough to buy 1.0 will save some money.

    LOL - you probably should have waited until there was a little more than just "coming soon." ;)
