Product Description

A #1 selling app on the iPhone, with over a million paid sales, Fling! is now finally available on Android - and we've made this Android version even better than the iPhone version!

***************************************

Fling! is an addictive puzzle-game based a unique concept, which while simple is at the same time infinitely challenging. Ideal for all ages.

Featuring over 100,000 unique puzzles, such that no two puzzles you encounter are ever the same, and split into 35 levels of gradually increasing difficulty, Fling guarantees you many long hours of puzzling fun!

Each puzzle has a single, unique solution, and is solved by simply flinging (pushing) the furballs, and watching them bump each other off the edge of the screen, until only one is left.

Fling! is tested and runs on all Android devices, from the old first generation devices to the latest tablets and dual-core superphones.

FOUR GAME MODES:

* FREE-PLAY mode - play at your own pace, while the game tracks your stats and keeps track of all puzzles solved/failed, allowing you to browse your entire puzzle-solving history and go back to any previously solved/unsolved puzzle to attempt to (re-)solve it!

* ARCADE mode - race against the clock, solving as many puzzles of ever-increasing difficulty as you can before your time runs out!

* CHALLENGE mode - solve sets of puzzles within a given amount of time to progress, while trying to beat your personal best times for each level!

* FRENZY mode - the all new survival mode - keep the board from filling up by flinging same-colored balls off the board!


OTHER KEY FEATURES:

* HINTs and UNDOs are provided to help you solve the puzzles when stuck.
* Game music, which automatically switches itself off at start when playing other music on your phone.
* Local+Global high-scores lists - compete against the millions of Fling! for iPhone (and now Android) players.
* Automatic saving of games - always come back to the game right where you left it!
* Themes - get an overdose of cuteness from staring at the furballs for hours? Try playing with the marbles or fruits or any of the four other themes instead!
* Simple tutorial - you'll be solving your first Fling! puzzles within seconds of downloading!
* Multiple language support - english, french, italian, german, spanish, japanese, chinese.
* Gameplay + instructions video on youtube - http://tinyurl.com/flingiphone or just search for Fling iphone.

**UPDATE** Please read the comment section of this review to see what the Co-Founder of Candycane Apps, Michael Bevin, had to say today to the Amazon customers when he posted comments to my review here, as well as other reviews, and just how untrustworthy this developer truly is. Read the comments he wrote and my responses to them, and you'll see why the lack of trust we had in this developer for any future sneaky add-ons was SPOT ON. For pretending to be a customer, and referring to himself in the third-person, and insulting the customers, he just lost another star. I'm trying to scrub off the last star, because it doesn't even deserve ONE at this point, but Amazon won't seem to let me.....
------------------------------------------------------------

First, it needs to be said that this app was an INCREDIBLE offender on what it harbors as far as permissions and add-ons. It's a FUN app, but was ridiculous in the spyware department.

TODAY, and ONLY TODAY, do you see a "cleaner" version of this app on Amazon as the FAOTD. One only needs to take a quick look on Google Play for both the free and paid versions of this to see the UNBELIEVABLE number of permissions those versions have -- the "regular" versions (see below).

Today's description on Amazon includes things that NOW do NOT RESIDE IN THIS APP. The only add-on is the Amazon Licensing. The only permissions UPON DOWNLOAD TODAY are the internet sockets, phone state and ID, network state, and preventing the phone from going into sleep mode. AND THAT'S IT. I'm not too keen on the phone state and ID coupled with the internet, but LOOK at what was REMOVED for this Amazon version: Feint and a boatload of permissions (again, see below).

As of 3pm Eastern Time, it has come to my attention that OpenFeint has been REMOVED from THIS VERSION on the Amazon App Store ONLY ! This still requires CAUTION for anyone that choses or has chosen to download this app. Is this a temporary ploy to appease leary customers, only to slip the unwanted data mback in at a later date when the dust settles ? Personally, I find it curiously suspicious that it was removed just for THIS version..therefore, FUTURE UPDATES COULD, possibly include adding OpenFeint back into this app.

***UPDATE***
If you go to the last page of the Comments section below, you can see for yourself just how deceitful the developer of CandyCane Apps really is! Then decide for yourselves if you can or want to take a chance in downloading this app.****

**ORIGINAL REVIEW **
I was so excited to play this game as soon as I saw the red Chuzzle looking fluffball in the app store tab on my Kindle Fire. Before I could start flinging some fur, I first needed to take the usual trip over to the Android Market for a little one on one comparison.

I mentally crossed my fingers as I checked out the Permissions. They were excessive. NOT a good sign. I can feel my heart beginning to sink... I'd have to look into those further but, quickly moved on in the hopes I'd find a reasonably honest explanation to the questionable permissions. That's when I found the evidence I was so desperately praying I would not find under the tab, "What's New" of their app. At that moment, not only did my heart completely sink to the bottom of my stomach, it rose back up into my throat, suddenly making me feel quite ill. The 3rd & last "new fix" explains the excessive Permissions in this app.

What's New in this version:

5.0 out of 5 stars Huh? I can't find OpenFeint on this app. March 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
No matter how hard I try and what tricks I use to make it reveal itself, I can't find OpenFeint anywhere on this app. I don't get the standard "No, Thank You. I don't like to have fun" splash screen. There are no OpenFeint junk files dropped on my SD card. I even turned off my internet connection trying to get the OpenFeint offline message. There is an in-app High Score Leaderboard (hence the need for the Network Permissions), but it appears to be a legit programmed part of the app, not an OpenFeint add-on.

Don't get me wrong--I'm very glad I can't find it--I hate OpenFeint. My only concern is that they are getting so sneaky about it that it can be invisible to the user. However, I doubt very much that that's the case. I'm wondering if the developers saw the start of the onslaught of OpenFeint complaints and quickly replaced it with a non-OpenFeint version.

Is everyone else besides me being hit with that crappy OpenFeint? If so, I wonder why I'm so lucky not to be--maybe I should play the Mega-Million Lotto today--it's over 540 million. LOL

As far as the game play goes, it's very good. I've played other versions of this type of puzzle game before and I've always enjoyed them. The pluses of this app are: smoother and brighter graphics, different modes of play (Free Play, Arcade, Challenge, Frenzy), and the number of puzzles (it's says 100,000 over 35 levels). All these features were lacking in the other apps I've played.
