    Doesn't the app locally backup ? As in if I was to get another iPad, would I be able to carry on were I left off on my current iPad ?

    It's a shame that the attention for the game has died down to the point that no one is posting on the forum anymore. I understand everyone has a life but as silly as this may sound, me initially getting addicted to this game helped me do something and keep myself active (Well mentally anyway) after I was going through a bad spell having lost my job. I've since acquired a new job and I only try to participate at Class 3 Airport events.

    I've been attempting to get friends into the game but many don't have an iOS device so it isn't easy ! Are their still any active players ? On the handful of occasions when I've played recently, the top 10 were all unknown to me.

    All my experiences with the cloud save in this game is that it never ever seemed to work for me, every time I’ve reinstalled I’ve found myself staring at a brand new game. Thankfully the game is REALLY easy to get built up and running in short time.

    And cross play was incredibly flakey with frequent lost progress when moving from phone to tablet and back again.

    Oh dear.

    I initially got into this game via an Android tablet but I had stop when the Android version of the game was discontinued. I now play via a 2nd Gen iPad which shows its age as starting the app seemingly takes ages and a simple task such as browsing through jobs seems to take a while. On my Android tablet, whenever an in-game notification came in (Such as a plane landing), I could tap on it and it would send me to it so I could send that plane off again (Awfully handy when doing the events !), however, this doesn't work on my iPad. I've been thinking of upgrading to an iPad Pro but I might have to think twice now.

    I've managed to acquire a new iPad (Pro) which is a fantastic upgrade from my iPad 2 ! I've also managed to successfully transfer my existing game over as well !

    It's essentially making sure your iCloud backup is active on your account and in game and then make a backup. I had already set up my new Pro but since I had hardly broken it in, I reset it and their is a choice when your setting it up that includes restoring from a backup, make the relevant choice and viola ! Although I have a 1st gen Pro, the game works well and smooth. Performance is really a step up from the iPad 2.

    Holy crap, this thread is still here after so many years!

    I’m really hoping Nimblebit runs with their new LEGO partnership and releases pocket planes legos next. PP is probably the best game I’ve ever played on a mobile device, and I’d love to see them come up with a newer improved version.

    Wow, still here!

    I just downloaded the game, again. Starting from scratch, again. Almost to level 8 and the coveted Mapples

    Pocket Planes no longer in stock at my local app store, though available from previous purchase. Entirely possible that NimbleBit are assembling new ones from Lego as we speak.
