  • I am still having problems with the 45% bug even after the update on Amazing Spiderman 2. The other issues I'm encountering are enemies and NPC's phasing in and out of buildings or getting stuck behind solid objects. In my boss fight with Goblin on the top of Oscorp he kept getting caught behind things, which at first added a level of difficulty but then quickly became annoying when that is the only place Goblin would appear. I was more annoyed with myself that it took 6 rounds to defeat him, but that probably was inflated by the fact he would be "stuck" in one of three areas on the map so his attacks were focused on the only path you could take to him. I am finishing the 7th Chapter and calling it a day with this title, even if Rhino is in Chapter 8 and I could technically continue.
  • Bought Echofon Pro months ago and ended up going back to the stock Twitter app because of notifications were either very very slow or never came at all. E-Mailed the developers and said that many people are having the same problem. They continue to update the app but don't seem to fix notifications. Does anyone know if the notifications issue has been resolved with this latest update???

  • PDF Expert by Readdle was updated today. They say it's for "-compatibility update for future version of PDF Expert". It will be interesting to see what they have planned.
