On the other hand it doesn't really surprise me Apple pulled such a ~crappy~ move, this kind of behavior is exactly why I'd never purchase a computer from them. can you just imagine all the browsers & programs they'd block because it "competed" with them? Contract is up in August :thumbsup: I'll definitely be switching phones. Man FaceBook should really make their Gameroom for mobile devices.


Their computers are great and last quite a bit, as well as being safer from viruses, etc. The problem is that they don't want people using an ipad as a laptop, etc. I got an ipad before buying my laptop, and it worked nicely with Puffin, but wouldn't allow me to connect a mouse. That's the kind of crap that pisses me off, much like this blocking browser apps that allow flash. But I don't think it's worth it to buy a new phone just for this game. BVG needs to move us to HTML5 so this won't be an issue.


Agreed, my ipad and macbook have lasted much longer than any of my other laptops etc!! It's just a bummer that puffin won't work with my ipad anymore :( May as well delete the puffin app it's all i used it for aha! Waste of money!



I completely forgot about that 4.99 version of Puffin! What are people supposed to do with it now? is Apple gonna refund people for spending money on something they themselves blocked?

hehe I did manage to leave feedback to Apple for their little move. :angel: If they're gonna be afraid of competition they should probably make their Safari app work for these types of games so people don't have to use "competitors". At least until HTML5 kicks in.


I know right? :eh: I know it's not puffin's fault but it's really unfair that it's just unusable for us now :(


I just wanna know who ok's these decisions lol you could at least provide the same service as the app you're basically taking away from people. I mean it was on Apple's platform so they must have taken a percentage of the money made from it. idk it's such a weird story! :dizzy: I'm completely confused.


I'm HOPING that apple see the amount of backlash that'll come from this and change their minds. There's no need to be greedy like that!

Ok, this STINKS horribly! :grr I've been using the free version of Puffin for as long as I can remember, when I go on trips. :wailing: Anyone know of another browser that would work with my Apple products? :?:

No way am I lugging my big heavy laptop around on trips! :grr :dizzy:

I do see in the Apple Store a Puffin version just for Fb......am going to try seeing if that works for my beloved Yo!

I did see a post from Jan 2018, which was last year about problems between ios and Puffin, but nothing recently. I do hope this isn't permanent, but trust me, if it comes to choosing a winner, I'm sure it'll be Apple, not Puffin...


I couldn't get this to work for me, I did try last night but it's not showing as an app so I downloaded it right while I was in their browser and it didn't work either. Puffin people told me it wouldn't work on tablet, only on pc.

LOL Not one of us wants to take their laptop on their trips & I love this :haha: :hug: I just don't understand why there isn't a Facebook Gameroom for mobile? It would make things so much easier. Is there like a suggestion site for Facebook we can write into?

Sorry Kat. There was a post after this one that said Apple had intentionally blocked flash on Puffin. And Photon doesn't work either according to Lucky and Stardust. I'm trying to research a mobile browser that will work on ios and supports flash, but it may be that Apple has killed them all in the most thorough way...

because of Apple doing this, the game pokemon go, has a lot of spoofers (hackers) and pokemon go can not stop them, because they can't access the information on apple phones/tabs :grr :eh:

I thought I had heard it wouldn't work there either. So not just an apple thing if that's the case. I hope someone gets to the bottom of this very quickly.

I guess it depends what brand of Android. My house got Xiomi and Asus android. Xiomi is China brand and when it came as a gift, apparently the dealer had loaded a lot of adware into it. I managed to do a clean install but for most I think Xiomi is out of the question.

I play from my pc


I think a lot of people only play from their tablets and for many people that's all they have to play from. I do have the pc when I'm at home but use my tablet for anything other than decorating. I do it so I'm not tied to the pc when I have other things to do. I can work in the garage for instance or on my other hobbies and still play the game to send or receive gifts, do neighbor visits and best of all watch videos while watching tv and snuggling the dogs. Having to do everything on my pc will seriously impact the amount of time I play the game.

A warning for iPad and iPhone users: please give up trying to access YoWorld through flash browsers. My Facebook account got locked after I tried to login Facebook using paid Photon, Puffin, and paid CloudBrowser. None worked, and Facebook thought my account was hacked!! They automatically locked my account! I asked them to send me a code to my phone, but it did not work! So as a last resort I sent them my ID (my passport) and only then they unlocked my account!! What a scare! :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

I just tried again on my iPhone and no. Are you using iPad? I think I'll take Stardust's advice and wait on this. It would be a bummer to have my facebook account locked...

I have the free version & an iPhone, that’s the shocking part! Maybe enough people got angry with them especially if it effected Pokémon go :dizzy:
