    Shoudn't the music pause when the game pauses? I noticed this in 0.3.8, and just confirmed it in 0.4.1.

    Otherwise, very good playability. I really appreciate the reprogrammable keys.

    Regards,

    You made an amazing app. I am addicted to it now.. I guess it shows when I spent about 40 minutes playing it to get it to 1044367... My previous high score was just over 300000...

    This game is addicting and I must say I am very impressed and will be buying it when it comes to the app catalog through Palm. Thanks for the great app..

    I have attached the screenshots.. I guess I just got lazy in the last few seconds of the game..

    Unbelievable-looking app, and thanks so much for all your hard work. For some reason, though, I'm getting an Install Error when trying to install from FileCoaster--is it a donation issue, or are things just really busy today since the front-page mention on PreCentral?

    For the record, this is MUCH better than the crappy Tetris demo EA has in the App Catalog.

    Just wanted to drop by to say this is a great app. Good job! I think the best part is being able to map the keys the way you like them, or optionally use touchscreen controls.

    I have a question though related to the inclusion of your app in the app catalog. I was always under the impression that companies had to license the rights to sell Tetris. Do you think it'll be an issue for you to sell BlockDrop in the app catalog?

    Thank you guys, We will make it even better. A little competition from the biggest gaming company in the world will help us make this app even better. . It will just take some time. We are releasing a new update soon.

    i just downloaded it and it says that it is expired. Do I have to wait till the next update in order to try this great game?

    I am getting the expired notice now too, as of this morning. I have been playing for about two weeks now, and all of a sudden I can't feed my addiction.

    Tried re-downloading via file coaster, same problem.

    This is a phenomenal game, I NEED my fix!

    Yeah, I'm quite disappointed to see this screen, especially after donating. This is my most used homebrew app, what am I gonna do while I'm taking a crap now?

    The link within the app itself mentions something about downloading the app from the App Catalog in "two weeks." I hope that means that the App Catalog will move out out beta in mid-September ... and that BlockDrop will be available at that time, too.

    Hello guys,
    I'm uploading an updated version with many fixes tonight or tomottor morning. I though I would have it out by this time but it took us a little longer as I'm working on other game soon to be released. Thank you for the support.

    So why was the previous version disabled? It seems more logical to just let it run instead of expiring it. At least, if there is ever a plan to require payment for the game, the ability to shut it off and require upgrades is a dealbreaker.

    Awesome update, performance is great, love the blockdrop logo behind the game board, and the dark buttons to choose difficulty. This tetris clone pwns the one EA released in the official app catalog in every way possible.
