This update is awful!

Is there any way to get it to stop trying to force me to watch an ad everytime I check in? My phone crashes and won't let me watch ads.

checked in to McDonalds ad about an hour ago but no points, don't remember checking in before and checked back a month and no points have been posted, might be over??
I know it says expiration unknown (EDIT: it's thru AUGUST 5th just saw the promo for it on the Bachelorette ad space) but I checked into it this AM and got my points immediately. However, knowing what I do about Viggle there could be some delay. P.S. i also checked into the one from several weeks ago.

The Bachelorette (The Men Tell All) Viggle Live! (+700)
28 questions worth +25 each
Thanks for playing!
Thanks for posting those Repped!
I H8 H@+3 H@Te it when Viggle Live does those no timer screens in between some of the questions. I started with the Arizona show & missed the first two questions because it never left that screen, and I realized there was something wrong.
I usually set a digital cooking timer because those alerts are so randomly unreliable and so quiet if there is any other sound (oh IDK like TV playing in the background it's easy to miss). I might have to crack out my old cell phone to use as another timer.

EDIT: Crap I tried to go back & get those first two questions from the Pacific time zone & now answering questions in Arizona is giving me 0 pts even though I've never answered them before. GRRRRRR! I'm like the greedy kid who has an arm full of fish but bends over to pick up those two last fish and ends up dropping all those I had in my arms.

lol I hate that Purple Screen of Death too don't know when a question is going to pop up but most of the time it seemed to be 3-4 minutes between questions.

I've said it before but Viggle has actually decreased the amount of time I actually watch TV. I'd rather watch a program I liked & then answer a bunch of questions all in a row about, if I knew enough that they could tell I watched it, then I'd get the points. If they did it that way at least would have usable data, I mean seriously they promote the DUMBEST SHOWS (most of the time).... The Bachelor & 'ette... Kardashians and allow these loopholes so you don't actually have to rot your brain to get the points.
Maybe the Nielson ratings will figure out how to do this better... Nono

can anyone tell me why they are changing the gift cards to 25 dollars and increasing the points needed to redeem for those?

I don't know why the increase in dollar amount (perhaps because that will mean fewer cards/prizes to pay out thus reducing the workload would be my guess --> as having to hire more people to process those small $5 & $10 cards would cut into profits. As for why it takes more points now to buy things seems like simple economics as well. More people playing Viggle now (i just saw an article about their membership increases) also there are now many more hardcore players racking up points fast, and so they make it take more points to redeem for prizes so the owners of Viggle don't have to pay out any more prizes & keep more of the advertisers money.

My guess is also that VIggle is trying to make it "harder" for the public to achieve a GC. Now they have to work 2.5 times harder to get a reward instead of a somewhat immediate gratification.

Then, they'll have gotten more subscribers for their "numbers", but they won't have had to pay out.

Just my .02

Got limited to about 3 ads on apple devices for the midnight shift on burn notice but when using my android I watch a McDonald's ad on burn notice and then the next ad gets covered up by the blue USA strip so I would force restart and doing so themcdonalds ad kept reappearing so I got 9 of them on Samsung Galaxy S4

No ur fine, my phone is a single core and does that sometimes as long as you dont kick the flag alert by getting too many n a short period of time... I.e. clicking on it 20x within 20min. 8x is not a flag kicker hehehe so breathe deep and dont get stressed lol ur a-okSmilie

Thanks Scott. I was flashing back to the good ole days (i.e. last year) when stuck ads were our fault not Viggles. Still getting over the Wendy's fiasco.
Whee bounce

When i emailed Viggle recently about my app keeps force closing, and/or I keep getting the spinning wheel under the check in, which does not allow me to check in, they wrote back and told me that they are starting something new with their advertisers, which means, for popular shows, you will have to watch a video if you check into that show.. there is no way around it.. BUT, DO THIS! After I check in, the video begins, and as soon as it begins, i hit the back key, so I don't have to waste my time watching a video and eating my data up... and viola! I am checked into the show anyway, without having to kill myself through a 30 second or longer video and not earning nothing but bonus points for the check-in.. and thirty seconds may not seem like any time to most people, but it seems forever when having to watch those videos, and you are ready to go to something else (blame it on my ADHD)
