I got a 50 point check in bonus in addition to the 1000 for The Colony. It's possible that there may be a 50 point bonus for non DTV users as well.

I was able to downgrade my iPad update by plugging it into my computer and uninstalling the new version (apply) then replacing it with the old version (apply) that was on my apps list in iTunes. I had updated directly on my iPad so the version on my computer from the last full sync was still the old one.

Now the app works again and all is good.
Thanks for reminding me that this could be done. So glad to be rid of that awful Ipad version!

Does anyone have a sound bite for The Colony?

And I know I seem like a noob, but I lost my original login info and cant retrieve it for some reason.

Thanks for the adviceSmilie. I just did that. I'm much happier now that I have this version back.

That was something wasn't it? IDK, maybe that's common for some of you that have been here a long time but I hit that Lexus 50 ad so many times I thought they were part of my long lost family. hug I've read in the wiki about people making huge hauls on the commercials but I had only been seeing & getting a few high values a night if I'm lucky.
I had a few questions to catch up on, boy did they shaft the Pacific time zone players. I don't think I saw a single ad worth more than 5 pts during the 5 or so questions I did to finish. OUCH!
-----------------------
P.S. (to myself probably) After earning any more points for watching, @ 10:45PM CST I checked into another show (thinking they might start the day at 11:00PM CST because that's 12:00AM E.S.T. And sure enough they do/did because at 11:43PM CST I was able to earn watching points again. I'll have to keep that in mind that for me If I can't earn points anymore I can start an hour long program at a bit after 10PM CST as long as I start at the beginning so it finishes after the change over @ 11PMCST. I see I wasted ~45 Minutes there but I didn't know it was going to work.

I have only been viggling for 4 months... and I was excited about the fifty point ads after every question, except in the last thirty minutes of it (I live in Eastern time zone, but i didn't start the trivia until the mountain time zone) and poor pacific time zone, they are suffering because i don't think they will get the ads... I tried to go back in and they are not there anymore... yeah, I knew other time zones, there new "viggle day" began the difference of eastern time zone, as in your case, 11 PM...

My problem now is that I can't check into any show at all... because of that stupid crap they put under the confirmation screen, you know, the one after it verifies the sound, and you click to confirm the check in? yeah, that screen, won't let me press confirm check in, because the thing under it is spinning.. I see others are having the same problem on facebook.. and I think it is us poor android users...

I say non Directv users should check in, they may get that fifty points, because it says check in bonus, while the 1000 pts say Directv Bonus in the points history...

Hmm, I'm on a HTC EVO 3D and besides the 5 or 6 crashes a day/night & a few things like enter a viggle live & it having the same question but the words nahnah or 59:59 in the time thing it corrects it for me when I go out & come back in, I haven't had any real issues with the Android app.

Just curious when is the last time you shut down & re-started your phone?

never... lol.. it stays on all the time... but it is happening on my tablets too.. i keep switching devices, and all of them are doing it.. so, i don't know.. i see others are having the same issue, but honestly, not that many people are complaining about it, so it may just be that few of us who are having this issue, and as far as you see on your android device with the app, i see the same things too.. lol... maybe it is time for me to get an iPad... i refuse to get an iPhone, though.. I'll restart my devices and see if that solves anything... BIG THANKS for your help!!

OK, THIS IS WHAT I DID.... on one device, i haven't tried the others yet, but i uninstalled the viggle app, then reinstall the app, then i restarted the device, and NOW i am FINALLY checked in... Thanks Bdubslawman for your advice, and EatMeVigg, maybe try that to see if it works for you?? I am going to do that on my other devices now.. hopefully this is the special formula to this "new update"

Everytime theres a screw up on the update I have to do that. I'm sick of it. I wish every time theres an update they would actually fix something & not screw another thing up. As far as I can tel the update was only because they updated their TOS.
