    I got this app after making a donation on the developer's website. Glad I did. Well worth the donation. Looks great (one of the best looking HomeBrew apps in my opinion) and gameplay is flawless. Currently "blockdrop" is my Pre time-waster of choice! Thanks and good work!

    Thanks for the update!! Thanks for the filecoaser link as well I updated with file coaster just fine. With the excepetion of my 'move down' keys do not work any more. Any one else have this problem?

    Love the gesture idea. I would prefer if I could swipe to the left or right to move left or right. Swipe down or up to drop. The home key could become the manual drop. The tap on the left or right to rotate is perfect.

    One small thing. That is a sweet backdrop animation on the first scene. It stops animating when coming out of settings though.

    This is a great update though!!

    Edit:Oo I just thought of something. If when I swipe down to throw the piece down. Make sure I can still control it. Say if I tap it will stop it from falling. Or at the last momment I could throw it under another piece.

    Sorry got carried away...

    You should d a soft reset if the down key is not working. Also go to settings and make sure they are setup to the ones that you like.

    I'm going to work more on the gestures. The SDK is a little limited when it comes to that.

    The backdrop animation stops so there is less processing and lag.

    Thank you for your feedback.. Im going to work on 0.3.8 now.

    Ya I tried the soft reset and looking at the keys. I set them to back to default too.
    I tried deleting and reinstalling. I also set the keys custom again. All the other keys work fine except the move down 1 and move down 2.

    I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work on this App! You are a genius Dan. I was very surprised by the frequency of these updates. I was particularly surprised by this update, as it was not long ago that these screen controls were mentioned. Yes, they are slightly limited now, but that's fine. I hope to see this in the official app store soon.

    By the way, when that time comes (that you are in the official app store), will we be required to purchase the app again? I have no problem supporting development of this calibre, I just am curious. I assume that this will be a pay app. Thank you again.

    I just tried deleting the directory with rm -rf and copying the source to the applications dir like I used to and that still didn't work.

    I did notice that after reinstalling that my custom keys was kept in memory somewhere looks like a cookie. I tried deleting the controls cookie then reinstalling, no go.

    Sorry if this is a silly question..

    Is there a suggested donation amount? it's tough to put a 'price' on an app you haven't used yet

    Edit: Grammar

    Hey Dan,
    downloaded and have been playing the new 3.7..... bad A S S!!!! looks great. i only noticed a few things.
    1) on the game screen you have the drop arrow in the middle of the screen. i noticed theres another arrow right below it (barley visable) they both work. im guessing you only wanted 1 arrow there.
    2) the down arrow at the bottom (right above the gesture area) im guessing is to speed up the 1 line at a time, right? that button does not work. i press it and the block drops the same. it should drop 1 line at a time as fast as u tap it, right?
    3) if you slide your finger in any direction anywhere on the screen the brick will fall fast, was that your intention? If so its a cool idea, but then you could probably get rid of the fast drop arrow in the middle of the screen.
    4) and when you select new game you go to the difficulty screen which is perfect, but after you select your difficulty level it brings you to the ready to play screen. should'nt it go right to the game? I like the "ready" to play screen at the start of the game, but dont think you need to go to it every time you start a new game after you lose.

    just my 2 cents...... otherwise kick A S S!

    I tried out this when was still prtris and decided to donate so I could try the new version. Its been almost 8 hours and I haven't received the link. Never had any issues w/my paypal address before. I emailed per instructions and pm'd and no response. Anyone else had this happen?
    It was the middle of the night, but I thought once you donated, it was an automated process?

    I'm planning to send it for free to the donors, since its not that many people I think Palm will be ok with that. But I will have to confirm with them. We didn't talk about the ceommerce part yet since they are still working on it.

    So the keys are still not working for you? Thats strange. .you are the only case with this issue. Yes the are stored in cookies, could you try deleting yours browser cookies maybe?
