Catan FAQ:

Question: Why do I have to download additional files after purchasing?
Answer: The download from Google play includes the basic game data and a tool that will determine your device’s display resolution and then download the optimal graphics data for your device.

Question: Which Android security permissions does Catan need and why?
Answer: “Storage” to write data to the SD or move the game data, “Network communication” to download game data and access the In App Store and “system tools” to check if Catan is already running to resume a game.

Question: I bought one of the expansions but after an update, reinstallation of Catan or after restoring my phone the expansion seems gone?
Answer: Don’t worry; your initial purchase is already saved in your Google account. However for technical reasons you might have to select “Buy” again. Confirm and a message will tell you that you’ve already purchased it. You will NOT be billed twice!

Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating from or when restoring my phone. Is there any way to restore it?
Answer: Savegames from old versions can usually be restored automatically. For all other cases we’ve integrated a cheat code: Enter campaign mode and go to select player. Enter „CatanWarp*“ (* = 1–15, e.g "CatanWarp5") as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button. Enter your phone’s settings menu. Select applications/manage applications/Catan/ and then “Force Stop”. Restart Catan. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number by selecting “New scenario *”.

User reviews of Catan
I've not played the board game but as far as I can tell this is a very good conversion and the tutorial did a good job of teaching me the basics. The complaints over paying for the expansion seems OTT to me as you don't have to buy it and it's no different from the board game where you can also buy numerous optional expansions.

Closest Thing to Sid Meier's Civ for Smartphone I like this game so much that I am considering buying the original boardgame. I haven't had the time while at home to play my beloved Sid Meier's Civ/Alpha Centauri games for years so I searched for an app thinking I would probably be disppointed. "Settlers..." is part Stratego, part Yatzhi/Risk, part M.U.L.E., and the heaviest dose of Civilization. Games are relatively quick. No matter how smart you think you are, the robber, roll-specific resources,and event cards always throw curve balls. Love it.

Doesn't work. Tech service is patronizing Game requires two downloads. Second download from USM doesn't work. When I asked customer service he keeps telling me to make sure my phone isn't on airplane mode. Equivalent of "are you sure its plugged in?" Not helpful at all.

Need to display either way in landscape Great game, brilliant features - would have 5 stars. However you can only play one way in landscape and the game will not flip the other way which is very frustrating for chargers etc! Hope to be able to give 5 stars soon :)

fun game but app needs improvement Fun game but terrible implementation of trading in the app. Often a computer player will make twenty(!!!) or more offers, all rejected by the user, in a single turn of the player. FIX THIS!!!! don't repeat rejected offers and provide an option to reject all offers from a specific player for that turn.
