    I never get any money and energy while the app isn't open, the timers only countdown while the app is open, is it meant to be like this? Cause that would make it impossible to become rich etc.

    Happens to me too but if you plug it into the computer and let the idevice turn off with it running, it keeps counting. Or atleast for me it does

    I have this same problem, when the update first came out i didnt have this problem, but now i am. hopefully this is not how it is suppossed to be, because it will take forever to gain levels and money

    Its doing this to me too... I wonder if this is the devs solution to cheaters setting their calendars on their devices ahead in order to get tons of money. It's possible that they could have implimented an ingame clock that only runs when the game is open

    Well that sucks. You get money every hour, so you would need to play the game for heaps of hours to get good money. This game just got crap. I thought it was good at first.

    From reading the in-game forum, it seems the developers did do this deliberately. A very VERY stupid thing to do. I moved to iMafia...b'bye iMob.

    I'm not positive because the Devs don't seem to participate in their own "report bugs" forums, but according to what others are saying I just inferred that the devs did this deliberately. Comments like "You guys should put the offline counters back on". Many many people commenting, nobody is claiming it as a bug there.

    Wow, I'm impressed they were THAT stupid. I mean these type of games are MEANT to continue while you're offline. I'm not gonna have the frickin app open for an hour just to get some cash!

    btw: My bank money was negative again, this is like the 5th day in a row or so.

    As much as I like this game I have to agree - Gameplay will be way too slow if the counters don't continue while the game is off

    I just opened iMob...still haven't deleted it. My money went up finally, but no other stats have for days.

    The game is broken. Has been since day one.

    Has anyone heard any news from the developer about the timer issue?

    well it has been several days with numerous bugs, and the offline thing is either The Stupidest Game Decision Ever or a worse bug from a previous bug fix. I moved to iMafia and have been enjoying that, very few bugs and glitches. I won't be giving iMob any money, they blew it.

    Ya, iMafia is good. Still a few bugs but nothing like the iMob fiasco. And the devs frequesnt this forum.
