[quote="Viking Jess"]Hey guys! I've been noticing a few common trends in your questions, so here are a few more answers in a consolidated format for your reading pleasure :heart:

What about shared computers, can more than one person use it?
Yes! Again, the App logs in through Facebook. Log out of Facebook using the arrow at the top right corner of the screen to log into another Facebook account!



We tried this and it is still showing the avatar of the person who downloaded the app. Maybe it is just a glitch. Could it be because of the shared IP address? I don't know but there needs to be a solution for this issue.

Since downloading all my browsers seem to work very slow. I don't have anything on my computer, it is primarily for internet use so I know there's space. Does the app stay open and run in the background or anything that would make everything slow?

Help! I’m not that computer savvy, I use an iPad Pro… I’m not sure what to do. I click on all of the three options, Local Storage,DropBOX and Google Drive..... The only one that did anything was the Google Drive, it said it was downloading then it said the download was complete, but I have no idea where to find it! Can somebody help me I’ve been trying to do this for two days now… Thank you! :sad:

Well whatever is right or wrong for some people, I LUV LUV the new desktop app when decorating. After changes were made to our game screen some time ago, I could never get the WHOLE game screen AND the inventory on the same screen so I was constantly having to scroll up and down, up and down and although I got used to it, I hated it. Now with the new app everything fits ON THE SCREEN!!! I was so excited yesterday when I ran across an undecorated room the I had forgotten about. Decorating was easy peasy and fast and no lag and.................did I say I LOVE it??? I do!!! :thumbsup: :heart:

You have to log out of both FB and the YoWorld app screen. If you go into game through normal FB, you should see the pop up to use your normal browser or the app. If you choose the app, it should open in it's own window and your FB page will still be open. Log out of both, then try logging in with another players info. :)

Pretty sure it can only be used on 64 bit computers. Not tablets or phones.

Mine is lagging really bad today. Yesterday when I downloaded the app, it was the fastest my game has ever run... Maybe they are doing something behind the scenes. I logged out for now.

Can you scroll to the right? It should be there, but your display settings may not allow for it on one screen :)

While hot dogs currently work, is there a way to enter them or use them directly from the desktop app? Currently I log into facebook on Chrome and click a hot dog link or copy/paste one into the browser bar and then as it connects, I choose the desktop app. Is there plans in the future to have a way to do this directly from the app or will two browsers be necessary every time? Or the elimination of hot dogs altogether?

I don't see it as a browser because if I click on the forum in game it opens up my actual browser. Am I doing something wrong?
"What is the Desktop App?
The YoWorld Desktop App is a browser, just like Chrome or Safari or Internet Explorer - but it was made specifically to run Flash for YoWorld during the 'in-between' time before 2020."

I'm experiencing the same thing with the BVG Browser, is opening my Chrome Browser while gathering Hot dogs or gathering Treasure, Adoption or loot fish in FW, anything from my FB wall or coming to this Forum or FW Community .
This morning I opened Chrome, I hadn't logged in anywhere, & I had 2 Chrome Browser windows open: 1 with the Forum, not logged into, besides my other Chrome Browser window with Bible tabs on it. I do log off FB after using your BVG Browser as well as quit the app to close the Browser as I would Chrome from the top left hand side.

I'm feeling insecure now, not understanding what/why this is happening. My assumption is Chrome is my default Browser. The BVG Browser is unable to handle tabs, so it defaults to Chrome or opens up several app windows? I had 3 Goldies in my task bar & then it opened Chrome. Than I started shutting windows down when I realized what was happening. Yo is quicker to open Chrome.

I'm here since it brought me here. LOL Warm Gentle Group Hug. You all have your work cut out for ya. I'm so sorry, it seems Thankless after reading all the threads, but we don't understand this.
1. Are we Safe?
2. Will we have tabs & bookmarks with this browser? Thank you, for all your hard work,

I would say yes we are safe. I have no worries personally.

Not sure if this is what you meant by bookmark, but I typed in YoWorld in the search area on your computer, the YoWorld App shows, I right clicked it and pinned to start. Mine is at the bottom of my screen for easy access. If I want to grab hot dogs, I go in through facebook, and then into the app.

If you use the pinned one at the bottom of your screen on your computer, it takes you right in game.
If you go in through facebook, you would get two screens. At least that is how it is working for me. Facebook in one window, the game app in another. My facebook browser that is open will still have the pop up to choose the app. I close it down or click back to home on facebook. My game is now open as well.
